Sometimes it's hard to find the time to volunteer at the holidays, sometimes not so much. A charity that my daughter and I have supported over the years is Operation Christmas Child. While a part of American Heritage Girls we did several events where we collected items for boxes and toured one of the packaging facilities. Unfortunately, she wasn't old enough at the time to actually work in the warehouse, so instead we made boxes. If you're looking for a fairly easy way to donate this year, let this be one of the things you consider. As you consider it, take a look at this video to help you figure out how to pack a box.
National Collecting Week is Nov. 17th - 24th. You can find collection sites on the Samaritan's Purse web site.
