Drive in Acadiana for shoebox gifts for children in need Nov. 13 - 20

Posted: Updated:

Several locations in Acadiana will serve as drop-off sites for the Samaritan's Purse project, Operation Christmas Child-joining nearly 5,000 U.S. locations collecting gift-filled shoeboxes for children in need around the world.

During the project's National Collection Week, Nov. 13 - 20, Lafayette residents will transform empty shoeboxes into gifts of hope filled with school supplies, hygiene items, and fun toys. Operation Christmas Child will deliver these shoebox gifts to children affected by war, disease, disaster, poverty, and famine.

This year, the Acadiana Louisiana Area Team hopes to contribute more than 4,482 shoebox gifts toward the 2017 global goal of reaching 12 million children.
