Shoe-boxes being collected

More than 4,000 locations will now offer a curbside drop-off option for the Samaritan ’ s Purse project , Operation Christmas Child . Volunteers are preparing to collect shoe-box gifts during National Collection Week , Nov . 15-22 .
Operation Christmas Child has been collecting and delivering shoe-box gifts — filled with school supplies , hygiene items and toys — to children worldwide for more than two decades . This is a project everyone can still be a part of , even with COVID-19 restrictions .
There ’ s still time for individuals , families and groups to transform empty shoe boxes into gifts . The project partners with local churches across the globe to deliver these tangible expressions of God ’ s love to children in need . Find a step-by-step guide on how to pack a shoe box on the website .
“ In the midst of the pandemic , the needs are greater than ever before ,” said Franklin Graham , president of Samaritan ’ s Purse . “ Children around the world need to know that God loves them and there is hope . A simple shoe-box gift opens the door to share about the true hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ .”
Participants can find the nearest drop-off location and hours of operation as they make plans to drop off their shoe-box gifts . The online lookup tool is searchable by city or zip code . Signs at each location will identify the curbside drop-off .
You also can now send the Gospel to the ends of the earth without leaving home . Shoe-box gifts built online go to the ends of the earth to children in some of the hardest-to-reach places , whether deep jungles , city slums , steep mountainsides or one of 1,000 remote Pacific islands . To build a shoe box online , simply go to www . samaritanspurse . org / occ and select Build a Shoebox Online in the middle of the page .
