A Project of Samaritan's Purse: Operation Christmas Child uses gift-filled shoeboxes

todemonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world.


Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts are collected in the United States, Australia, Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. More than 500,000 volunteers worldwide, with

over 100,000 of those in the United States, are involved in collecting, shipping and distributing shoebox gifts.

Year-round collection

Although National Collection Week takes place every November, preparation is done all year round! We collect items throughout the year, with an emphasis on specific items each month, so that when it comes time to pack the shoeboxes, we already have plenty of things to stuff them with! Visit the OCC area at the church to see what we're collecting right now!
