We don't have any little ones on our Christmas list so we love an excuse to go out a buy gifts for children who really need some good cheer. For several years we have been packing shoe boxes with small toys, school supplies, and personal items for Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child program. Without question, it is our favorite gift buying experience of the season. It doesn't take a lot of money to fill a shoe box and yet we know that it will bring a lot of joy. You can start shopping now to prepare for their collection week that is November 17th- 24th. You can head over to their website to type your zip code in to find the nearest drop-off location.
