OCC Shoeboxes

HELP US SEND THE GOOD NEWS TO CHILDREN ALL OVER THE WORLD

The Samaritan’s Purse project, Operation Christmas Child, collects shoebox gifts—filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items—and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.

Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has sent over 188 million shoebox gifts to children in countries around the world. Shoe boxes from PCC have gone to countries such as Haiti, Ecuador, South Africa, Colombia, Honduras, Burundi, India, Benin, and more! Be part of reaching children all over the world with the good news of the gospel by contributing to our shoebox collection.
