This holiday season (Nov.29 – Dec.18, 8am-10pm daily), Inland Empire residents are joining thousands of people across the U.S. and around the world to sort and process shoeboxes with toys, school supplies and hygiene items for 9.8 million impoverished children. Anyone can participate in Operation Christmas Child. The time to pack a shoebox gift is now! For more information on how to volunteer in the Operation Christmas Child Proccessing Center, or to find the nearest drop-off site, call 714-432-7030 or visit samaritanspurse.org.
Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritan’s Purse, headed by Franklin Graham, is the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. Through simple gifts and a message of hope, children learn they are loved and not forgotten. For many of these children, the shoebox gift will be the first gift they have ever received.
A year-round, online giving tool also conveniently allows anyone to build a box online at samaritanspurse.org.
