The deadline to fill the Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes is fast approaching.
Samaritan’s Purse has handed out shoe boxes filled with basic hygiene items to toys to more than 135 million kids in over 130 countries since 1993.
Frank King with Samaritan’s Purse says the shoe boxes go to children in countries dealing with major struggles like Haiti, Senegal and Ukraine.
King says if you don’t have time to shop to fill a box you can easily do it online at www.packabox.ca.
Last year, Canadians filled more than 730,000 shoe boxes.
The deadline to drop off the shoe boxes is Sunday, November 20.
