2020 Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Gifts

We are packing shoeboxes again this year for Operation Christmas Child (OCC), a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. Fill a shoebox with school supplies, hygiene items, toys (include one “wow” item such as a stuffed animal, doll or ball with pump) and a personal note to bring hope, joy and God’s love to a child in need, especially during this time of uncertainty during the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

The gift-filled shoeboxes are distributed through local churches around the world and each child will also receive a colorful Gospel booklet in their language, making the boxes an effective outreach tool.  Many children who receive shoebox gifts will also enroll in The Greatest Journey, a 12-lesson discipleship program, where the children learn to faithfully follow Christ and share their faith with others.

 

A $9 per box donation helps cover the cost of shipping and other OCC project expenses.  Please mail your check (payable to “Samaritan’s Purse” with Memo – OCC) using the postage paid envelope or donate online.

 

Build a Shoebox Online

Also, new this year is the option to have Samaritan’s Purse build an OCC box for you online. The donation amount for Build A Shoebox Online is $25, which includes the $9 donation for shipping and expenses.

Let’s again bless hundreds of children with a gift-filled shoebox and an introduction to God’s Greatest Gift of Jesus!
