Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child
2017 Collection – November 13-20, 2017
Operation Christmas Child (a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse) takes shoe boxes filled with gifts and the gospel message in the child’s language and delivers them to underprivileged children around the world. The child is also given the opportunity to attend a Bible study and discipleship program. You can collect and fill your own shoe boxes to have them ready for collection in November.

Suggested items for the shoe boxes are school supplies, personal hygiene items, and small toys, just to name a few. Please note – Beginning with the 2017 collection, toothpaste and hard candy are no longer accepted. Additionally, please do not include breakables, liquids, food or war toys.
