It is National Collection Week(November 17-24) for Operation Christmas Child. A week when you can fill a shoebox with small gifts to bring the love of Jesus Christ to children around the world. It's an easy and fun way to give. You just get an empty shoe box, determine whether your box will be for a boy or a girl and the child's age category, fill it with gifts, include a check for $7 to help cover shipping and program costs and drop the box off at your nearest collection point. A simple act of kindness that will bring joy and hope to children living in desperate situations around the world.
