You can still help Operation Shoebox

THERE’S still time To Help Operation Christmas Child fill 100million shoeboxes.

Over the past 22 years, Samaritan’s Purse has delivered 94 million shoeboxes to needy children in over 100 countries and is looking to lift this total.

While the general deadline for dropping of shoeboxes has now passed, there is still time for people to wrap and pack shoeboxes, provided they are able to drop them off at Shoe Zone stores by Monday, December 3.

There’s also good news for people too busy to wrap and pack shoeboxes as those who are unable to get out can create and send their shoeboxes online.

Samaritan’s Purse Executive Director Simon Barrington said: “We want to remind the children of the world that, whatever their circumstances, people in the UK do care about them and are thinking about them this Christmas.”

Online shoeboxes can be created from £11, go to
