Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization, will soon be collecting shoeboxes for their annual Operation Christmas Child campaign. Shoeboxes filled with goodies will be distributed at Christmastime to needy children around the world.
Packing a shoebox is easy and can be a fun activity for your whole family. Shoeboxes can be filled with toys, school supplies, candy, hygiene items, and clothing. See the Samaritan's Purse website for more information about recommended items and prohibited items.
If you would like to participate in filling and wrapping a box or two with your family, you can bring your boxes to the November 18 MOPS meeting and we'll deliver them to a local dropoff site for you.
All the information you may want about Samaritan's Purse and instructions for filling and sending your Operation Christmas Child box can be found here.
