Operation Christmas Child lists collection sites

Posted

This month, sites in the Rome area will be among thousands of U.S. drop-off locations collecting shoebox gifts for children overseas during Operation Christmas Child’s National Collection Week, Nov. 16-23.

For decades, these small boxes, lovingly packed with toys and other items, have been delivered to millions of children around the world. As the world wrestles with a global pandemic, children need hope now more than ever, organizers noted.

Find Drop-Off sites and hours of operation online at www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/drop-off-locations. Donors will be greeted at curbside drop offs by volunteers wearing personal protective equipment. Local sites:
