There are two drop boxes on the Palouse for gift donations that will be sent around the globe by a national charity organization. The organization, Operation Christmas Child, collects shoebox gifts around the country and delivers them to children worldwide.

The drop boxes will be open for shoebox gifts — containing toys, hygiene items and/or school supplies — until Monday.

One drop box is located in Pullman at the Evangelical Church of the Palouse, 4812 Airport Road. The other is located in Colfax at 109 S Mill St. in Colfax.
