Operation Christmas Child

Shoebox Collections Underway

Now Through Nov 13th


Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an International Christian relief and evangelism organization. For over 25 years Operation Christmas Child, the world's largest Christmas project of its kind, has collected and delivered more than 140 million gift-filled shoeboxes to boys and girls in over 100 countries around the world. Each and every gift is a powerful demonstration of God's love. And it starts with YOU!


Stop by the hallway to drop off your collections or pick up a shoebox or two to fill! Thank you for the supplies already donated. Small toys, hygiene items, school supplies, sunglasses, socks, shoes, and flashlights with batteries are some suggestions. (No food, candy, liquids, or toothpaste, please.) You can also access this link to build a shoebox online or make a donation. The deadline for collections and filled shoeboxes is Sunday, Nov 13th. Your gesture of love and generosity will open children's and families' hearts to God and His Kingdom from across the globe!

However you choose to participate, you will be giving the gift of hope and the love of Christ to a child in need!
