Dozens gathered in Phenix City to kick-off this year's Operation Christmas Child shoe box collection season for the Chattahoochee Valley Area.

Operation Christmas Child is a worldwide children's project that collects shoe boxes filled with school supplies, toys, necessity items for underprivileged children.

Last year, Chattahoochee Valley residents collected more than 15,000 boxes for the cause and organizers hope to go even higher this year.

Nationwide, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect 9.8 million gift-filled shoe boxes in 2013.
