Missouri City residents join Operation Christmas

Child efforts during National Collection Week

While most people in the U.S. are preparing for holiday activities, Missouri City volunteers with Operation Christmas Child—the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind—are filling shoe box gifts with toys, school supplies and hygiene items for needy children overseas. This year-round project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritan’s Purse, headed by Franklin Graham, is ramping up as local businesses, churches and community groups prepare to collect gift-filled shoe boxes during National Collection Week (Nov. 12 – 19).

Anyone can drop off a packed shoe box at the Missouri City-area collection site. Then, using whatever means necessary—trucks, trains, boats, bikes and even elephants—the shoe box gifts will be hand-delivered to hurting children in 100 countries around the world.

The Missouri City collation site is located at The Harvest United Methodist Church,
9029 Sienna Ranch Road, Missouri City.

Drop   off hours are:
Mon – Nov 12: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Tues – Nov 13: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Wed – Nov 14: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Thur – Nov 15: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Fri – Nov 16: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Sat – Nov 17: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Sun – Nov 18: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Mon – Nov 19: 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Additional local collection sites can be found using the Drop-Off Locations icon at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.

In 2012, Operation Christmas Child expects to reach a milestone—collecting and delivering shoe boxes to more than 100 million children since 1993. During that time, Operation Christmas Child has collected more than 94 million shoe box gifts and hand-delivered them to suffering children in more than 130 countries.

This year, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect another 9 million gift-filled shoe boxes. Through the power of a simple gift and the message of hope through Jesus Christ, children learn they are loved and not forgotten. For many children, the shoe box gift will be the first gift they have ever received.

Operation Christmas Child uses tracking technology to allow participants to “follow” their box to the destination country where it will be given to a child in need. To register shoe box gifts and find out the destination country, use the “Follow Your Box” donation form found at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.
