Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child has been collecting and delivering shoebox gifts—filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys—to children worldwide since 1993. This is a project that everyone can still be a part of, even with COVID-19 restrictions.

Individuals, families, and groups on the Olympic Peninsula still have time to transform empty shoeboxes into fun gifts. Find a step-by-step guide on the Samaritan’s Purse website: https://samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/pack-a-shoe-box/
