Pack a Shoebox This Weekend

This weekend our family will be getting our shoeboxes ready for the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child. We have been participating in this wonderful program for three years now and just love it! In fact our kiddos have been saving and collecting things to put in their boxes all year long.

They will each pack a box for a child their own age and will include a note with their name and address in hopes that the child may be able to write them back. Last year Samaritan's Purse had a new feature in which you could actually track your specific box to a specific city and country. That was fun and we look forward to seeing where our boxes end up this year.

If you are looking for a great project for your children (or yourself!) to promote the spirit of giving this holiday season, Operation Christmas Child is just the thing . National Shoebox Collection week is November 15-22. Go here to find out how to pack a shoebox, where to take it and how to track it.
