The Altus Operation Christmas Child Collection Center reported an “awesome week”. They received a total of 1091 boxes here at the Altus office. Those boxes will be going to either Philippines or Mexico this year, according to Charlene Stephens, local coordinator. Seen inside the Altus Operation Christmas Child Collection Center are students from Altus Christian Academy. A group from Martha Road Baptist Church loaded the boxes, 65 cartons of them, and took them to the Collection Center in Lawton.
