Join the Big Blue Crew and pack a shoebox this year for Operation Christmas Child!  

WNZR is proud to partner with Samaritan's Purse for Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan's Purse will be collecting shoeboxes for the 2022 collection season.

National Collection Week is November 14 - 21.

 

Every year, National Collection Week takes place the third week in November when more than 4,500 drop-off locations are open across the country. Throughout the year, you can also Build a Shoebox Online at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ

You can also build a shoebox online – go to www.samaritanspurse.org/occ

You can choose from a variety of gifts and even upload your photo and a letter. 

 

If you prefer the convenience of online shopping, browse www.samaritanspurse.org/buildonline to select gifts matched to a child’s specific age and gender, then finish packing the virtual shoebox by adding a photo and personal note of encouragement. 

 

Shoeboxes should be packed for either a boy or a girl in one of 3 age categories: 2-4, 5-9, or

10-14. A $10.00 donation is requested for each shoebox to cover shipping and other project costs. Checks should be made payable to Samaritan’s Purse with “OCC” written on the memo line. You can also donate $10 online and receive a tracking label to Follow Your Box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift.
