NOV. 12 – 19: Central Panhandle of Florida OPENS DROP-OFF SITES FOR International Christmas Project

October 29th, 2018 | last Update: 1 second ago

Local Families Make Global Impact Through Operation Christmas Child

Central Panhandle of Florida, November 1, 2018—This month, 6 sites in the Central Panhandle of Florida area will be among 5,000 U.S. drop-off locations collecting shoebox gifts for children overseas during Operation Christmas Child’s National Collection Week, Nov. 12-19.

Panhandle families, churches and groups are busy transforming empty shoeboxes into fun gifts filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items. The Samaritan’s Purse project partners with local churches across the globe to deliver these tangible expressions of God’s love to children affected by war, disease, disaster, poverty and famine. For many of these children, it will be the first gift they have ever received.

This year, Panhandle-area residents hope to collect more than 18,750 gifts to contribute to the 2018 global goal of reaching 11 million children. With the impacts of Hurricane Michael, we need you to pray about your shoebox gifts and see if you can pack a few more. Together we can give the Central Panhandle a strong presence.

“We are honored to be linking arms with our community to help children around the world experience the true meaning of Christmas,” said year round Panhandle volunteer Donna Mosier, who has participated in Operation Christmas Child for many, many years. “These simple gifts show God’s love to children facing difficult circumstances.”
