Now’s the time to pack your Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts with love and prayer for children in need around the world! In just two weeks, Samaritan’s Purse will open nearly 5,000 drop-off locations across the country to receive millions of these gifts—which will, in turn, become opportunities for local churches in more than 100 countries to share the Gospel. National Collection Week is Nov. 18th-25th!

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Operation Christmas Child ships these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
