Operation Christmas Child-til Nov. 24

Published:

This is one of my favorite ways to help a needy child overseas.

Just fill up a shoebox of gifts and drop it off at a site near you. Nov. 17-24 is National Collection Week.

I have fun filling my shoebox from things purchased at the $1 store and things around my house,

then I gift wrap the box and drop it off.

You can choose a boy or girl and age range you would like to give to. You can add a letter and pix

if you want and sometimes the child that got your box will write back to you!

The site tells what type of things they need, like soap, toothbrush, hairbrush, socks, etc.

Just enter your zip code on the site and find the drop off place near you.

Hurry, last day to drop off the shoeboxes is Nov. 24.

This is one of my all-time favorites as well. I look forward to it each year. The deadline for our church was last Sunday.

Thanx Jack. I got my neighbor involved to do a shoebox for a boy 10-14 yrs. old. You shoulda seen him in the store, he got so excited picking out dice, flashlight, glowsticks, hat! LOL He had a blast.
