Students, God Can Use You to Help Change a Child's Eternity
occ logo More Than A Shoebox

God can use you to help change a child’s eternity.

Each shoebox gift you pack gives churches throughout the world an opportunity to share the Gospel with those they might not otherwise meet.

157m shoebox gifts delivered since 1993

14.9m children enrolled in our follow-up discipleship course The Greatest Journey since 2009

1.9m boys and girls committed to sharing their faith with friends and family this year

Students from Oregon to Pennsylvania enjoy packing shoeboxes and also serving as year-round volunteers with Operation Christmas Child.
