Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, will be collecting shoe box gifts between November 16-November 23 throughout 4,000 locations across the US.
These shoe box gifts are a tangible way to show God’s love to children around the world. These gifts contain toys, school supplies and hygiene items to children in need.
In Scott County, First Baptist Church Waldron will be a local drop-off location. Shoe boxes can be dropped off at the west wing of the church at the intersection of Washington and 6th Street. Volunteers will accept shoe boxes November 16-November 20 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., November 21 from 9 a.m. until noon, November 22 from 9:30 a.m. until noon, and November 23 from 8 a.m. until 10 am.
Samaritan’s Purse is also offering an online option for giving shoe boxes. If you are interested in this option go to https://samaritanspurse.org/occ for more information.
