Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project, is calling on local kids, families, churches, businesses, schools and community groups to fill shoe boxes full of gifts for children in more than 100 countries who are suffering from disease, famine, war, terrorism and natural disaster.

Filling a standard shoe box for a boy or girl ages 2 to 14 with toys, hygiene needs, school supplies, clothes, hard candy, balls and dolls will bring a smile to a hurting child.

They will learn that people care about them and that they have a Savior who loves them.

A $7 per box donation will help with shipping and add literature of the Good News.

National collection week is November 14-20.

E-Free is a drop-off center! Drop your boxes off:

Monday – Friday: 9am to 3pm

Saturday: 9am to 3pm

Sunday: 1pm to 4pm
