Local drop-off points named for Operation Christmas Child


This month, sites in Bucks County will be among 5,000 U.S. drop-off locations collecting shoebox gifts for children overseas during Operation Christmas Child’s National Collection Week, Nov. 18-25.

Families, churches and groups are busy transforming empty shoeboxes into fun gifts filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items. The Samaritan’s Purse project partners with local churches across the globe to deliver these tangible expressions of God’s love to children affected by war, disease, disaster, poverty and famine.

This year, area residents hope to collect more than 28,408 gifts to contribute to the 2019 global goal of reaching 11 million children.

Following are area collection sites:

- Hatboro, Covenant Presbyterian Church, 515 W. County Line Road;

- Quakertown, East Swamp Church, 2405 E. Swamp Road;

- Southampton, Davisville Baptist Church, 325 Street Road;
