Drop off shoe box gifts during National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child from Nov. 14-21 at LifeSpring Church, 743 S. Dotsero Drive. This is the peak of the year-round project of Samaritan’s Purse.
Shoe box gifts will be sent to children all over the world. Shoe boxes can be dropped off 3-5 p.m. Nov. 14-18; 10 a.m.-noon, Nov. 19; noon-3 p.m., Nov. 20 and 10 a.m.-noon, Nov. 21. Operation Christmas Child uses whatever means necessary to reach suffering children around the world including sea containers, trucks, trains, airplanes, boats, camels and even dog sleds.
Tracking technology also allows donors to “follow your box” to the destination country where it will be hand-delivered to a child in need. To register shoe box gifts and find out the destination country, use the EZ Give donation form found at www.samaritanspurse.org. For details, visit the website.
