TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) — Starting Monday, multiple locations throughout Tippecanoe County will open to collect shoe box gifts filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items for the Samaritan's Purse project.
The Samaritan's Purse project partners with churches across the globe to deliver holiday shoe boxes to children affected by war, disease, disaster, poverty and famine.
This month, sites in our area will be among 5,000 U.S. drop-off locations collecting shoe box gifts for children overseas during Operation Christmas Child's National Collection Week, starting Monday Nov.12 through Monday, Nov. 19.
This year, area residents hope to collect more than 9,600 gifts to contribute to the 2018 global goal of reaching 11 million children.
