Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on project of Samaritan’s Purse that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas—Jesus Christ—God’s greatest gift.
Every item lovingly added to an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift has the potential to impact a child.

In 2016, several pastors from churches across Canada went on an Operation Christmas Child shoebox distribution trip in Senegal.
This year we also had some Canadian volunteers travel with us to Costa Rica to help distribute gift-filled Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, and see the impact of our voluntary “The Greatest Journey” Bible study program for children and families that received shoeboxes.
Learn how to pack a shoebox and send a gift to a child in need today.
Please donate $10 for every shoebox you prepare. Your donations will help cover project costs, including shipping (make one combined donation for multiple shoeboxes). Consider making an additional donation to help Samaritan's Purse go beyond the shoebox and expand assistance to children, their families, and their communities. Samaritan's Purse does not provide receipts for the value of gift items included in a shoebox.
