It's National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child. In 2015 it runs from Nov. 16 to Nov. 23. Be sure to get your shoeboxes turned in to a collection center or relay center near you! Hundreds of thousands of children don't know why we have Christmas and don't received any gifts. Many of these children have never received any kind of a gift. Through Operation Christmas Child, children in over 130 countries and territories have the opportunity to receive a gift and to learn about the saving love of Jesus Christ. If you haven't packed a shoebox yet, it's not too late! You can go online to find a relay center near you or to pack a shoebox online.
All of these children were in Tanzania when they received their shoebox in May 2015.
