The shoebox gifts are due back by Sunday, November 22nd. We have set up an outdoor drop box by the West Entrance for you to conveniently return them at any time of day or night. Our normal drop off time is between November 16th and November 22nd, but if you would like to drop them off earlier the box will be there.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease, and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. We praise God that each year they are able to reach millions of children in some of the most remote areas of the world with an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift and the message of the Gospel. Pick up your box by the children’s wing during regular business hours, follow the instructions included in each box, and bring them back. We have limited boxes. If you do not see any boxes at the display, you can use a shoebox from home or a shoebox-size plastic tote from a local store.
Drop off filled boxes anytime between November 16th and November 22nd.
