What is Operation Christmas Child?
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.
What Can I Do To Help?
There are information brochures in the lobby of the church with instructions on how to pack a shoebox gift. Also, with just a few clicks, you can pack an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift online to help share God’s love with a boy or girl in need around the world. Simply select toys and other fun items you’d like to include from our collection, and personalize your gift with your own letter and photo. Your gift will be packed for you and sent on it's way for a suggested donation of just $25 total for each shoebox.
