A reminder that this is Operation Christmas Child collection week. Grab a shoebox (or any shoebox-sized container) and fill it with gifts for either a boy or a girl. You might also include hygiene items like a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, a small washcloth, etc. Take your shoebox gift to the nearest drop-off location. You have until Sunday to get them delivered! They must be collected this week to be sure the gifts will make it to boys and girls around the world in time for Christmas.
In addition to distributing these gifts, Samaritans Purse also preaches the gospel of Christ in the towns and villages where they visit. Not only will your gift bring Christmas to a boy or a girl in a less privileged part of the world, but it can help change the lives of many people for all eternity. For more information about these shoebox gifts, how to pack a shoebox, or for a drop-off location nearest to you, visit SamaritansPurse.org.
