National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child will be Nov. 12-19.

Have an impact on a child’s life with a simple shoe box gift. Fill a shoe box with school supplies, toys, necessity items and a note of encouragement for a child overseas suffering due to disaster, disease, war, terrorism, famine or poverty. This year, Operation Christmas Child expects to reach more than 100 million children receiving shoe box gifts.

There are collection sites throughout Maine. Visit samaritanspurse.org/occ or call the Northeast Regional office at 518-437-0690 for information.
