Operation Christmas Child

Pack a shoebox gift for a child in need.

Be part of how God can use a gift-filled shoebox given in Jesus’ Name to transform a child, their family, and their community.

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
