What is Operation Christmas Child?

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.

We still need some items to fill the shoeboxes. Click here for a list of what we need.

Christmas in July?

Time to begin thinking about shoeboxes. This is the time of year when stores are selling school supplies cheaply. They have spiral notebooks for 25 cents and Crazy Art crayons for 25 cents and 36 Ticonderoga pencils for $1 at Walmart. Also other stores have similar sales. Please shop now for these items. If you don’t want to store them till the packing party then call Pat 778-1719 and we can arrange to get them from you. Thank you very much. Pat
