A small gift can make a large difference.
Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced love and care
through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child (OCC). Samaritan’s Purse works
with local groups to deliver the gifts to children all over the world.
OCC was begun by Bob Pierce and continued by Franklin Graham, the son of Rev. Billy Graham.
Please check out the following websites for more information on this charitable organization, and find out how to pack a shoebox gift!
The Middle Keys drop-off center for shoe box gifts is The Marathon Church of God located at
800 74th Street Ocean, halfway down the street in the heart of the neighborhood.
