A simple shoe box filled with some of life’s most basic items – things like toothpaste, soap, school supplies and small toys - could be the best Christmas present some children ever receive. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has worked with people just like you to collect more than 61 million shoe box gifts and hand-delivered them to needy children in some 130 countries. For many of these children, the shoe box gift will be the first gift they have ever received.
Putting together a shoe box is a great way for you, your family or your church to show a child in need the love of Jesus this Christmas. This fall, shoe box gifts can be dropped off at Operation Christmas Child collection sites. To find the nearest location call (800) 353-5949 or visit the Operation Christmas Child website for a site near you. You can also mail your shoeboxes to Operation Christmas Child and even follow your box to the destination country. Shoe box gifts can be mailed to: Samaritan’s Purse, 801 Bamboo Road, Boone, NC 28607.
