NEW JERSEY — Operation Christmas Child is in full swing in New Jersey, and there’s still time to donate a shoe box filled with toys.

Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, a disaster relief organization. Samaritan’s Purse has delivered 124 million shoe boxes filled with toys, clothes, toiletries, and gospel literature to children in more than 150 countries since 1993.

Volunteers at churches throughout New Jersey are collecting shoe boxes that will be shipped to needy children throughout the world in time for Christmas. Below is a map of where shoe boxes can be dropped off and when. Hours vary by location. Collecting ends Monday.
