Operation Christmas Child

Pack a shoebox and bless a child overseas

Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ. In July we will be asking you to help us with this project. There are three ways you can help.

1. Take a free box and fill it yourself.

2. Donate money for the purchase of items in bulk, which will be used at a packing party in November.

3. Bring the hygiene items selected for each week in July:
July 5 – toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss
July 12 – washcloths, bar soap, and wet wipes
July 19 – brushes, band-aids, and tissue
July 26 – stick deodorant, 24-count crayons, and chapstick
