The Hobby Lobby chain of retail stores partnered with Operation Christmas Child (OCC), a project of the international relief organization, Samaritan’s Purse.
Through OCC, families, churches, community groups, and individuals fill shoeboxes with gift items that are delivered to hurting children around the world. Since 1993, OCC has delivered to more than 124 million children in more than 150 countries and territories. Their 2015 collection goal is 11 million shoeboxes.
From Labor Day through Nov. 23, Hobby Lobby customers can purchase shoebox size plastic containers and gift items to pack in the shoebox at all Hobby Lobby stores nationwide.
