Operation Christmas Child

Since Operation Christmas Child began at Samaritan’s Purse in 1993, countless individuals have shared their passion for the project and inspired families, groups, and churches to pack shoebox gifts. Join us in packing shoeboxes. It will touch the lives of children and families around the world and bring hope through the Good News of Jesus Christ in the form of a simple gift.
