Operation Christmas Child: The Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child collects shoe box gifts filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the gift filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.

Need specific ideas of what to pack? Check out these great suggestions from Samaritan’s Purse.

American Heritage Girls and Trail Life Boys are collecting items, prepackaged shoeboxes, and/or donations for shipping through Tuesday, November 14th, 2017 to send to children in need this holiday season. Drop your donations off in the lobby by Sunday, November 12!

NOTE: Every shoebox needs a $9 donation to cover critical shipping and ministry costs. IF you cannot fill a shoebox with items, consider donating some $$ towards the cost of sending a box.
