The Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child collects shoebox gifts—filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items—and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. Every shoebox gift is an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, not only to the children, but their parents and other family members as well.
Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, has collected and delivered more than 209 million shoebox gifts to children across the world. OCC enters its 30th year of ministry in 2023.
Anyone can pack a shoebox. Individuals, families, churches and groups fill empty shoeboxes with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys, such as dolls or soccer balls. Learn how to pack a shoebox, view gift suggestions, get your Follow Your Box label at samaritanspurse.org/occ.
