One of the world's largest Christmas projects is coming to Bristol starting Monday.

Several locations in Bristol will be transformed into drop-off centers for Operation Christmas Child.

Local volunteers are ready to receive more than 6,500 gift-filled shoeboxes which are packed with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and encouraging notes.
