Samaritan’s Purse delivers Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts to Ukraine and more than 100 other nations each year. This is possible, in large part, because churches around the globe work together to bless millions of children in Jesus' Name.

“A shoebox gives us an opportunity to continue to shine the bright light of the Gospel in the darkest and most remote places around the world. … When that shoebox leaves and it goes around the world, that's not just one person, that's the body of Christ joined together delivering the Good News of the Gospel.
