With the Holidays quickly approaching, Alyssa Wilmoth, a sophomore student at The University of Mississippi, spreads Christmas joy not only around campus but also to children in poverty stricken countries. She brought the organization Operation Christmas Child onto campus after previously partaking in the organization at her local church.
“Each participant gets a shoe box and they pack it with toys for a girl or boy in whichever age group they chose. Then they wrap the box up and send it off and a child overseas receives it who may not get a Christmas present that year,” said Wilmoth.
Alyssa enjoys participating in the organization because she knows that a child out there in enjoying their Christmas just like she does with her family each year.
