Victory Life Church is the official drop off location for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Collection in Scott County.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
The 2018 collection date and times are as follows:
- Monday, November 12 – 10:00AM-Noon
- Tuesday, November 13 – Noon-4:00PM
- Wednesday, November 14 – 4:00-8:00PM
- Thursday, November 15 – 4:00-6:00PM
- Friday, November 16 – 11:00AM-2:00PM
- Saturday, November 17 – Noon-3:00PM
- Sunday, November 18 – 2:00-4:00PM
- Monday, November 19 – 8:00AM-Noon
(Due to the packing and delivery of all donated boxes, Noon on Monday, November 19 is the absolute cut-off time and we are unable to accept any donations after this time. Anything after Noon has to be taken to Porter Memorial Baptist Church (the main headquarters) in Lexington or mailed.)
