Operation Christmas Childʼs National Collection week is Monday, November 18- Monday, November 25. Through Operation Christmas Child, Franklin Graham and Samaritan’s Purse will make a difference this Christmas for needy children around the world. This year, Samaritan’s Purse will distribute millions of shoe box gifts, put together by church and community groups, and families. Shady Grove encourages individuals, families, churches, workplaces, and schools to be part of the worldʼs largest Christmas project for children. Help them receive the love of Christ in a tangible way, through the power of a simple gift. Gift-filled shoe boxes may be dropped off at Shady Grove during Collection week.
