Operation Christmas Child 2023

What is OCC? It is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, who’s mission is to provide shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children around the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Even more so today, boys and girls around the world need to know that God loves them and has not forgotten them during this time of fear and uncertainty. The process couldn’t be more simple:

  1. Find a shoebox (use your own or pick up a preprinted box at church)
  2. Decide on a girl or boy and age group
  3. Start collecting approved items for your box and fill it up
  4. Pray over the box
  5. Donate online to “follow your box” to its destination. 

Build a Box Online
This year you can pack a shoebox gift online. Simply select toys and other fun items you’d like to include from our collection, and personalize your gift with your own letter and photo for a suggested donation of just $25.

This year we will collect shoe boxes from Wednesday, November 8-15th.
