      Operation Christmas Child – National Collection Week Nov. 18 – 25
      “What goes in a shoebox gift is fun, what comes out is eternal,” and that’s why there will be Seven Drop-off Locations in Brevard County aiming to collect over 15,000 shoeboxes! Shoebox gifts are a tangible way to demonstrate God’s love to needy children around the world. Each shoebox is filled with small toys, needed school supplies and necessary hygiene items. This effort is part of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief organization. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, has collected and delivered more than 168 million shoebox gifts to children in more than 160 countries and territories. For many, this will be the first gift they have ever received. This year, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect another 11 million shoebox gifts for children in countries like Peru, the Philippines, Rwanda and Ukraine.
      Anyone can participate! Just pack an empty shoebox with a “Wow” item—like a doll or soccer ball—and other fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items. Then take it to a drop-off location during National Collection Week, Nov. 18 – 25, 2019. Drop-off locations include:
