Operation Christmas Child - 080053 Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

Every item lovingly added to an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift has the potential to impact a child.

Each shoebox is filled by Canadians with hygiene items, school supplies, and toys, and is given to children regardless of gender, race, or religion. When culturally appropriate, copies of a book entitled The Greatest Gift, which has been translated into 130 different languages, are offered to children after the shoeboxes have already been distributed.

Following the  shoebox distributions, local  churches  and ministry partners are equipped with a 12-lesson Bible study course, titled  The Greatest Journey,  which  introduces interested children to Jesus, shows them how to receive Him and follow Him, and equips them to  share their faith  with family and friends.

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.
