Operation Christmas Child uses a simple shoebox gift as an opportunity to share the love of Jesus Christ. Since 1993, over 188 million shoebox gifts have been collected for children in over 160 countries and territories. Now more than ever, children need hope and joy! In 2021, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect enough shoebox gifts to reach another 9.7 million children. Pack a shoebox and drop it off during National Collection Week, November 15–22! Locations and more information are available at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ
