After a year spent gathering, sorting and preparing gifts for children living in poverty, Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child has wrapped up in Orange.
On Friday, a truck took more than 1672 gift boxes to be distributed to children in the Philippines and Cambodia in the Christmas and New Year period.
One of the charity group's facilitators Robyn Hicks said the boxes were prepared in Orange and surrounding towns.
She said on Friday morning more boxes were brought in before the truck arrived from Sydney about 11am.
Mrs Hicks said throughout the year about 20 volunteers filled shoe boxes with items selected for either boys or girls and made age appropriate.
"The children haven't received a gift before and they are in poverty," Mrs Hicks said.
"They are such large countries and they have a lot of different ethnic groups.
"A lot of these places are quite remote, if you go to countries like the Philippines on a holiday there's parts of the country you just don't see."
Mrs Hicks said the shoe boxes, and the boxes they were packed in were donated by businesses.
She said the Second Orange Scouts and Cubs, as well as Girl Guides and church volunteers helped pack the boxes.
