A great way to wet your feet in service during Christmas time is to help fill a shoe box for Operation Christmas Child (by Samaritan's Purse). Fill shoe boxes with toys, school supplies, personal items, and other gifts. These boxes are then distributed all over the world as Christmas gifts, accompanied by Christian literature by Samaritan's Purse. Collection week is November 18-25th. See http://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/ for details.
