“If you start purchasing items for the box in January, by November you have made a nice Christmas box.”
– Vicki D.
“Quality is important. A child will probably only get one box ever and they deserve it to be a nice box full of good stuff. You can see their excitement when they are waiting to get their box. They deserve a box FULL of things that will last and not break right away.”
– Linda D.
“Operation Christmas Child is my passion! I buy all year long. This year I am making at least one box a month until collection time. I have challenged my church family to do the same.”
– Yalanda T.
Samaritan’s Purse is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity. All contributions designated for specific projects shall be applied to those projects, and we may assess up to 10 percent to be used for administering the gift. Occasionally, we receive more contributions for a given project than can be wisely applied to that project. When that happens, we use these funds to meet a similar pressing need.
