It's way more than packing boxes. We prayed over each box and for the child who would receive the box. We wanted every shoebox to show a child that someone cares about them.

Serve with Samaritan's Purse as an Operation Christmas Child seasonal employee and you will work with volunteers to help bring Jesus' love to children around the world. Working at one of our processing centers, you help facilitate the processing and preparing of millions of shoeboxes for distribution to children in need. You are acting as the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to bring joy to children, families, and communities.

The third week of every November, we collect shoeboxes packed with school supplies, toys, and hygiene items packed by individuals and groups across the nation. From approximately mid-November to mid-December, we prepare these shoebox gifts for international shipment to church partners, who distribute these gifts to children during Gospel-focused community events.

Let all that you do be done with love.
1 Corinthians 16:14
