Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child Ministry

Operation Christmas Child is NOW underway for 2017. Everyone’s Christmas shoebox is due on November 12. The boxes will be delivered by Samaritan’s Purse to many 3rd world countries before Christmas. They will add appropriate children’s materials that will explain the true meaning of Christmas in the children’s language. Please include a check for $9 made out to Samaritan’s Purse to cover shipping.

Be sure to check below for details on how to put a shoebox together and what also can go into a box. (There are some changes for 2017, including no candy this year due to new customs regulations.)

Thank you to Kim Amato for coordinating this year’s Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Project!
