Every year, National Collection Week takes place the third week in November. Southern Calvert Baptist Church serves as an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Central Drop-off Location. We assemble shoe boxes filled with items such as toys, school supplies, hygiene items, clothes and accessories appropriate for children ages 2-4, 5-9, and 10-14. Samaritan’s Purse then delivers the boxes to one of more than 170 countries. Every shoebox is the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
