First Baptist Church is a community dropoff location for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, which are due by Monday, Nov. 18.
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, which has shown God’s love to over 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries through the power of simple shoebox gifts in the last 20 years.
The Holyoke community is encouraged to pack shoeboxes this year. Gift suggestions include school supplies, toys, hygiene items, T-shirts, etc. A personal note to the child and a photo can also be included. Please visit samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/pack-a-shoe-box/ for more ideas as well as a list of items that should not be included.
