The amazing journey of a simple shoebox gift begins with you!
Adventure Aquarium invites you and your family to join in our Season of Giving through Operation Christmas Child. Kids, young and old, can spread holiday cheer with shoebox gifts for children in need in more than 100 countries around the world.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED:
FIND A SHOEBOX
Pick up a shoebox from Adventure Aquarium or simply find an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you would like to wrap it, please cover the box and lid separately.
GIRL OR BOY?
Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy as well as choose the age category: 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14.
FILL WITH GIFTS
Select a quality “wow” toy such as a doll, soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal. Then add other fun toys, hygiene items and school supplies. More gift suggestions can be found here (hyperlink https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/what-goes-in-my-shoebox-suggestions/).
Drop off your shoebox at a collection site near you during National Collection Week, November 14th through 21st. For collection site locations, visit here.
