Collections Continue this Week for Operation Christmas Child

This month, locations in the Orlando area will serve as collection sites for Operation Christmas Child—the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. The annual Samaritan’s Purse project is a favorite of many Orlando residents, families, churches and groups who spread joy to millions of children around the world by filling shoeboxes with a “Wow!” item—like a doll or soccer ball—other fun toys, school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.

“Through the simple act of filling a shoebox, someone in Orlando can make a tangible difference in the life of a child halfway around the world. Anyone can participate and bring joy to a child facing difficult circumstances,” said Regional Director Cindy Beyer.

During National Collection Week, Nov. 16 – 23, Orlando and surrounding area residents hope to contribute more than 23,000 gift-filled shoeboxes to the 2015 global goal of reaching 11 million children in need.
