Can you help?

During National Collection Week, nearly 5,000 drop-off locations will be open across the U.S. to receive shoebox gifts and Immanuel will be serving as one of those locations. But we need your help to make that possible! Prayer partners and volunteers (greeters, cartonizers, and loaders) are needed during the drop off times listed on this page and also to load the truck.
