Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child runs from November 18th - 25th.
If you have never participated before here is the general idea:
Get an empty shoebox and fill it with items for a child including toys, school supplies, and hygiene items. Select if your box will be for a boy or a girl and what age range it is intended for (2-4, 5-9, or 11-14). Donate $7 for each shoebox you pack to help get it to its destination (if you donate online, you can track where your box winds up). Drop your shoebox off at your nearest Collection Center. The box will then travel to a child from one of over 130 countries. Over 100 MILLION boxes have been shipped to children all over the world since 1993! Be apart of something amazing this season just by packing a shoebox.
