Gifts-In-Kind Opportunities

Operation Christmas Child counts on in-kind donations to ensure each shoebox gift is full and of the highest quality. We use donated items from organizations and businesses as filler items and to replace items that may harm a child or damage the shoebox. Most in-kind donations we receive are discontinued, imperfect, or overrun items that companies can’t sell, but would make great gifts for needy children around the world.

It’s Easy to Give Back Through In-Kind Donations

You can donate any time during the year, and we’ll provide free pickup and shipping if you’re donating one or more pallets of items. Your donation is tax-deductible.

You can also donate services such as transportation. Millions of shoeboxes are collected at thousands of drop-off sites, and we have to move those shoeboxes to our processing centers to be sorted and shipped.

The list below includes more suggestions for items and services you can donate.
