Operation Christmas Child

Welcome!

Operation Christmas Child is an ongoing, year-round project of Samaritan’s Purse culminating in a collection week just before Thanksgiving.  

Individuals, churches, organizations and businesses gather toys, school supplies and hygiene items – as well as make handcrafted gifts – to fill shoeboxes, which are distributed around the world with the message of the Gospel of salvation in Jesus.
