Start packing your shoebox for Operation Christmas Child! Now is the time!
We want to invite you to take an ordinary empty shoe box and turn it into something extraordinary. Just fill a standard size shoe box with gifts of small toys, hygiene items, school supplies and hard candy for children ages 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14.
You'll share the real message of Christmas!
Each and every shoe box is hand-delivered to needy children in over 100 countries around the world suffering from poverty, wars, sickness and disasters as an international outreach ministry. Your gift filled shoe box has the potential to impact a child for eternity!
Please bring gift-filled shoe boxes to one of six drop off locations during National Collection Week, November 14-21, 2011. (Click here for the locations)
For more details of how to pack your shoe box gift or where to drop off your shoe box gifts, please call 800-353-5949 or visit samaritanspurse.org/occ.
