Drop-off locations around the multi-county ME Capital Area Team will be open to receive gift-filled shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child on Monday, Nov. 13, according to a news release from Lucas Zellers, with the Samaritan’s Purse project, Operation Christmas Child.

During the project’s National Collection Week, Nov. 13-20, these sites will collect shoebox donations filled with school supplies, hygiene items and toys for children living in poverty overseas. This year, the volunteers hope to contribute 10,000 shoebox gifts.
