Drop-Off Locations Open for Operation Christmas Child November 14 – 21

various children and projectsSeveral local locations will serve as collection sites this year for the Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child—the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind.

During National Collection Week, Nov. 14 – 21, Fort Lauderdale residents will donate shoeboxes—filled with school supplies, hygiene items, notes of encouragement and fun toys, such as a doll or soccer ball—for Operation Christmas Child to deliver to children in need around the world. This year, Fort Lauderdale and surrounding cities residents hope to contribute more than 67,755 shoebox gifts toward the 2016 global goal of reaching 12 million children.

“The shoebox gifts donated by Fort Lauderdale volunteers at these drop-off locations will shine a light of hope to children living in poverty overseas,” said regional leader Milagros Almarante. “Anyone is welcome to pack a shoebox and help a child facing difficult circumstances to feel loved and not forgotten.”

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 135 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 150 countries and territories. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.
