This year, on November 17, as part of Samaritan’s Purses Operation Christmas Child shoebox program we are hosting a packing party.
We are looking to pack as many quality boxes as we can by having you bring in new items to pack in them. We want to fill shoeboxes with items that will last. Think about the kids in your life—pack items you feel they would enjoy.

Take a look at the gift suggestion pages AND consider bringing in an item from each of the 6 sections. This will ensure that we are not all buying the same items.
What is Operation Christmas Child?
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Through this project, Samaritan’s Purse partners with the local church worldwide to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations.
How To Pack A Shoebox
Operation Christmas Child delivers great joy and the Good News of Jesus Christ to children in need around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes. Each box packed full of quality toys, school supplies, and personal care items becomes a tangible expression of God's immense love for the child. For many, it is their first gift ever! Delivered by our local church partners, shoebox gifts provide an opportunity to present the Gospel to boys and girls in a clear, child-friendly way.
