TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Changing the world, one shoebox at a time.

That's what one local church is doing for this years holiday season.

First Baptist Church of Terre Haute is collecting shoeboxes, but they aren't filled with shoes.

They're filled with educational materials, toys, and toiletries.

Eddie Campbell is a volunteer, and he says it makes all the difference being able to help with this every year.

"We've had individuals that have come back that received these boxes when they were children and how it changed their life, and now that they're grown, they come back and they share with us how these boxes impacted their lives."

You have until the end of the week if you want to donate a shoebox.

Drop off location is at the Frist Baptist Church at 4701 Poplar Street.
