Sharing the Christmas Spirit, One Box at a Time
— Naples Airport is a Collection Site for
“Operation Christmas Child” —
Naples Airport is pleased to be a collection site for the Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child. This annual program unites us globally in aiding and organizing the distribution of millions of gift-filled shoeboxes to children living in over 100 countries around the world. This effort is made possible through the dedication and contributions of numerous volunteers.
Beginning October 13 and through November 13, 2021, look for the empty shoeboxes stacked in the North Road Terminal lobby. It is our hope that NAA employees, tenants and the general public will take a shoebox — labeled for a boy or girl, and age ranges — and fill it with items to make a child’s day. Suggestions include school supplies, hygiene items, notes of encouragement and fun toys, such as a doll or ball. Operation Christmas Child volunteers will deliver the chock-full shoeboxes to children in need around the world.
What’s more, each box will be labeled and can be tracked so benefactors can learn the destination of their generous donation. Learn more about the program here.
