NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

Local volunteers gathered in north St. Louis County Sunday to pack holiday gift boxes for kids in need.

The volunteers packed gift boxes with toys, school supplies and personal care items.

The effort is part of Operation Christmas Child, an annual event to bring much-needed supplies to thousands of children living in poverty.

Volunteers filled more than 700 gift boxes on Sunday.

In all, they hope to send more than 21,000 boxes to children this holiday season.
