Impact a child's life with a simple shoebox gift. Fill a shoebox with school supplies, toys, necessity items and a note of encouragement for a child overseas suffering due to disaster, disease, war, terrorism, famine or poverty. This year, Operation Christmas Child expects to reach a milestone with more than 100 million children receiving shoe box gifts since the project began in 1993.
National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child is November 12-19. There are collection sites around the Tupelo area.
