If you missed this year’s campaign, you can still make a donation by either packing a shoe box and forwarding it to Samaritan’s Purse, or by making a financial contribution to help defray expenses including the airlifting of packages abroad. You can learn more about this project by visiting the Samaritan’s Purse website.
Once the shoe boxes have been inspected, they’ll be prepared for delivery. Samaritan’s Purse leases aircraft and makes use of sea shipping containers to transport the gifts abroad. While this process is unfolding, people are supporting the effort through prayer and churches in receiving countries make preparations to receive the gifts. Gifts typically arrive at local distribution points by truck or other conveyance.
