More than 4,000 locations will now offer a curbside drop-off option for the Samaritan’s Purse project, Operation Christmas Child. Volunteers are preparing to collect shoe-box gifts during National Collection Week, Nov. 16-23.

Operation Christmas Child has been collecting and delivering shoe-box gifts filled with school supplies, hygiene items and toys to children worldwide for more than two decades. This is a project everyone can still be a part of, even with COVID-19 restrictions.

Participants can find the nearest drop-off location and hours of operation as they make plans to drop off their shoe-box gifts. The online lookup tool is searchable by city or ZIP code. Signs at each location will identify the curbside drop-off.
