It may be summer, but folks in Grand Rapids are getting ready for Christmas in July.

Operation Christmas Child delivers shoe boxes full of goodies to kids around the world during the holidays. On Tuesday, people will get together at Grand Rapids Alliance Church to stuff shoe boxes and learn more about the project.

Last year, the area sent out about 1,500 boxes full of school supplies, clothes and toys.

If you want to learn more about how you can help, you can RSVP to the event by calling Barb at 218-839-6101.

The event goes from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. The shoe boxes will go out in November.
