Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child (OCC) has delivered shoebox gifts to over 103 million children in 148 countries.
These gifts are given to boys and girls living in poverty and for many of these kids, this is the first gift they have ever received.
Packing a shoebox gift is an easy and fun way to spread hope and joy this Christmas.
Ways for people to get involved-pack their own shoebox and drop it off at a local collection site during National Collection Week (Nov. 18-25), support the Rockford Girl Scouts by "adopting" a box to help cover the $7 shipping costs
