Shoebox collection set for holiday

 

October 24, 2019



This month,

Flomaton, Brewton, and the Monroeville areas will be among 5,000 U.S. drop-off locations collecting shoebox gifts for children overseas during Operation Christmas Child's National Collection Week, Nov. 18 through 25.

Flomaton and area fami- lies, churches and groups are busy transforming empty shoeboxes into fun gifts filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items. The Samaritan's Purse project partners with local churches across the globe to deliver these tangible expressions of God's love to children affected

by war, disease, disaster, poverty and famine. For many of these children, it will be the first gift they have ever received.

This year, Flomaton-area residents hope to collect more than 5,630 gifts to contribute to the 2019 global goal of reaching 11 million children.

"I love seeing the local com- munity rally together for a global impact," said Regional Director Shelli Wishard. "We see all ages getting involved more and more every year."
