Orange & Operation Christmas Child
Introduce Your Church
To Operation Christmas Child
Every week, teachers use curriculum developed by Orange to communicate God’s truth to children, youth and families. Lives are richer because of your investment. Millions of children and families around the world have yet to learn Jesus loves them and desires to have a relationship with them. You can change that.

Be a blessing in a child’s life through Orange’s partnership with Operation Christmas Child. Shoebox gifts packed by your church will be tangible proof of God’s great love to boys and girls who need to know about the Savior. Many who receive shoeboxes will also be invited to participate in our 12-week discipleship program, The Greatest Journey. Since 1993, Operation Christmas child has delivered shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items to 113 million children in more than 150 countries—including some where it is illegal to be a Christian.
