A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children's lives all over the world in Jesus' Name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.
Each year, Samaritan's Purse delivers millions of gift-filled shoe boxes to boys and girls all over the world. A gift to Operation Christmas Child helps cover processing and shipping expenses and allows our teams to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with children and their families.
“Since learning to crochet 3 years ago, I try to make something every week for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Each year our church hosts a packing party so we are always in need of filler items. This year I am making small drawstring bags. They don't take a lot of time, or material, so I am able to make many (usually far more than 1 per week). As I crochet I pray for the steps of the boxes getting to the distribution centers and then to the children as well as praying for the child (and their family) who will receive this gift.” - Melinda M.
