INDIANAPOLIS — It's Operation Christmas Child's National Collection Week (Nov. 18 - 25), and there are several Central Indiana sites for families to take part in the international Christmas project.

Operation Christmas Child's National Collection Week is a project hosted by the nondenominational Christian organization, 'Samaritan's Purse.'

Throughout the week, families, churches, and groups will be transforming shoeboxes into gifts filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items for children overseas.

Samaritan's Purse partners with local churches across the globe to deliver the shoeboxes to children who have been affected by war, poverty, disease, and disaster.

This year, Indianapolis-area residents hope to collect more than 10,000 shoeboxes to contribute to the international goal of reaching 11 million children.

Participants can make a shoebox and drop it off at a participating location (see below for one near you), donate $9 per shoebox to be created on your behalf, or select gifts online to be sent to a child of the age and gender of your choosing.
