Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child, the world's largest Christmas project, will be having its national collection week November 14-21, 2011. Kids and families pack empty shoe boxes with simple items most people take for granted, including toothpaste, toys and school supplies. The shoe boxes are then delivered to hurting children around the world. In addition to the clean water, health care, and food Samaritan's Purse provides, Operation Christmas Child addresses a need for which children are just as desperate - the need to have hope and feel loved.
