WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — There’s still time for you to transform empty shoeboxes into fun gifts before collection ends on November 23.
Multiple locations in Tippecanoe County are collecting shoebox gifts filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items for Operation Christmas Child.
The local community efforts are among 4,000 U.S. locations collecting the shoebox gifts to send to millions of children through the Samaritan’s Purse project.
The Samaritan’s Purse project partners with local churches across the globe to deliver holiday shoeboxes to children affected by war, disease, disaster, poverty and famine.
This is a project everyone can still be part of, even with COVID-19 restrictions.
