Operation Christmas Child Collection Week – Nov. 13 – 20th

Operation Christmas Child Adel IowaCourtesy of Adel United Methodist Church

November 13 – 20 is National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child!

This ministry is a part of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization.

In Operation Christmas Child, gift-filled shoeboxes are distributed in 150 countries to children who are living in destitute conditions.

Receiving a gift-filled shoebox very likely will be the first and only gift the children will have received. And although the gift is simple, it makes a life-changing difference!

You can participate by filling an ordinary shoebox with school supplies (notebook, pencils and sharpeners, pens, crayons), hygiene items (fragrance-free bar soap, a washcloth, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb/brush, barrettes/ponytail holders), toys (stuffed animal/doll, toy cars, deflated soccer ball with pump, jump rope), clothing, candy, a personal letter including your email address, and a check to Samaritan’s Purse ($7 for each box) for shipping or pay online at in order to track your package. Please do NOT include any liquids, things that can melt, or anything that is warlike.

Please do drop off your shoebox gift at our local drop-off site, the Adel United Methodist Church, 115 S. 10th Street, during November 13 – 20th.

Please have your boxes to church by November 19th.  If you wish to personally track your box, you can go to

The Adel UMC invites the public to use the ramp on the south side of the building (Prairie Street) for an easy transition of transporting the boxes from your vehicle into the church. Volunteers will be there to greet and assist you!

Thank you for participating in Operation Christmas Child! Your loving outreach helps children to know that they are loved and not alone. One box at a time, one child at a time, we will share send the gifts of love and hope around the world!
