More than 500,000 volunteers worldwide are involved in collecting, shipping, and distributing shoebox gifts.

Every shoebox gift you pack helps reach children worldwide with the true meaning of Christmas. If you would like more information about Operation Christmas Child or would like to pick up shoeboxes, please call Eleanor Peterson at 251-9764. Collection week is November 16 – 21.
