JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-  The opportunity to help kids on the other side of the world have a brighter Christmas was right here in Craighead County.

Operation Christmas Child is in full force this fall as shoe boxes full of items for children suffering from poverty, natural disaster, war and famine were collected.
      
Co-coordinator for Craighead County, Kristi Hawkins, said many people are unaware of how hard life is for children in other countries. "Some of them don't even know what a bar of soap is or a wash rag, or if they do, they have to share with their family and it just breaks my heart to hear these stories," Hawkins said.

November 25 is the last day gifts are being collected. Hawkins said they are in need of monetary donations, school supplies, hygiene products and toys. They could even use volunteers.
