Share a lot of love, in a little shoebox this holiday season.  Grab a shoebox out of your closet and fill it with a few toys, school supplies, socks, hair bows, coloring books and crayons, hygiene supplies and more.  Then wrap it and drop it off to Operation Christmas Child to give to a child in need.  See the video below and learn more about how it works.

Samaritan's Purse is the driving force behind the Operation Christmas Child initiative, which is now a national effort.  During the week of November 17-24 more than 4,000 drop-off sites open across the country to collect shoebox gifts for children here and around the world.  For more info on how to get started Call 1-800-353-5949 for more details or email occinfo@samaritan.org for more information.  For frequently asked questions, click here.
