  • Have an OCC theme for a child’s birthday party. Have attendees bring empty shoe boxes and supply filler items.
  • Moms and dads can have a special shopping day with their children to pick out shoe box gift items.
  • Have a neighborhood shoe box packing party.
  • Use your Operation Christmas Child packing party as an opportunity for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with your neighbors. Download and print the “Evangelistic Packing Party Guide” and start making plans today. Use our new Evangelistic Packing Party Guide.
  • Whether you’re a family of two or 20, helping those in need can bring you closer to God and to each other. For ideas of how to be the hands and feet of Jesus year-round, check out our Guide for Serving Others as a Family by Operation Christmas Child and Focus on the Family.
