EDMOND, Okla. – A group of students in Edmond is hoping to help children in Oklahoma City this Christmas by donating hundreds of presents to a local organization.

No Boundaries International is collecting gifts for 2,000 children living in low-income areas of Oklahoma City through ‘Operation Christmas Shoebox.’

Organizers say hundreds of kids in Oklahoma struggle with poverty, hunger and a lack of resources.

They decided to make at least one day special by giving them presents for Christmas.

Students at Oklahoma Christian School will begin loading trucks on Friday with items they collected for the project.

Residents can help with ‘Operation Christmas Shoebox’ by dropping off donations at the group’s Edmond office, located at 49 E. 15th St.

Organizers say they are in need of new, unwrapped presents for pre-kindergarten to sixth grade boys and girls.

Last year, No Boundaries International provided gifts to over 750 children.

This year, organizers have doubled their goal.
