It was like an assembly line in process when local volunteers, Bonnie Winek-Kutz, at left, and Linda Shumard, at right, check out the contents of the shoeboxes they are processing at the Operation Christmas Child processing center in Minneapolis, Minn. Churches, families and individuals from throughout the area collected toys, school supplies and personal care items to pack in a shoebox for shipping to third world countries and children in disaster areas, including victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey.
