Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritan’s Purse, headed by Franklin Graham, is the world’s largest Christmas project. Since 1993, the project has hand-delivered more than 77 million shoe box gifts to needy children in more than 130 countries.
For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child, call (800) 353-5949 or visit http://www.samaritanspurse.org. National Collection Week for gift-filled shoe boxes is Nov. 15-22; however, shoe box gifts are collected all year at the Samaritan’s Purse headquarters in Boone, N.C.
I think this is a great program and opportunity to help bring a smile to an orphans face that may not have ever know the joy of receiving a gift for Christmas. A photo of the giver is encouraged but not required. This will put a face to the gift when opened.
Lets start collecting gifts for children gang, to put in shoe boxes.
