Kick off the season of giving by serving together as a family! Bring donations to fill shoeboxes or just show up to help pack boxes to send to children around the world as an expression of God’s love. Donated items or monetary donations can also be given toward the cost of shipping and purchasing gifts for children. Write notes to include in the shoeboxes and pray for the children who will receive these gifts. Light refreshments will be provided.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Our 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. We 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 United States.
