National Collection Week is the one week a year when the entire nation turns in their shoebox gifts to Samaritan’s Purse. This year that week is November 17-24. This is an exciting time of the year and the culmination of our volunteers’ hard work. Almost 9,000 Operation Christmas Child volunteers work hard all year long in anticipation for this moment. This year we expect over 8 million shoebox gifts to be turned in, processed, and given to over 8 million children around the world.
