Operation Christmas Child
What is Operation Christmas Child?
Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God's love. This program of Samaritan's Purse provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on missions project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas—Jesus Christ.

Packing and praying over a shoe box may be the closest thing many of us will ever get to the mission field. It doesn't get much easier than this.
This year Samaritan's Purse is planning on distributing a record number of shoe boxes to the hurting children to more than 100 countries around the world. Please help us reach more children for Christ.
One Shoe box = One child = one Gospel message = one soul.
