2020 Troop Goal: Pack 25 Shoeboxes

In honor of its 25th anniversary year, American Heritage Girls (AHG) is sharing the #AHGOCC25 Challenge! AHG and Operation Christmas Child have set a goal for each Troop to pack 25 shoebox gifts full of toys, school supplies, and hygiene items for children in need around the world. Every Troop that meets the 25-shoebox challenge goal will earn a commemorative patch for their participants. The Troop will also be entered into a drawing to send an adult member on an International Operation Christmas Child Vision Trip. Troops must enter their shoebox counts and number of patches earned using the collection form above by November 30, 2020 to qualify.

“The altruistic act of kindness in building and sending a shoebox molds the hearts of our future servant leaders while building empathy for their international sisters and brothers. I can’t think of a better way for kids to share the love of Christ while praying for the impact of their gift from generation to generation.”
—Patti Garibay
American Heritage Girls Founder and Executive Director
