OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

WHAT IS OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD?

Operation Christmas Child is a unique project of Samaritan's Purse that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes. More than 80 million children in 130 countries have been touched by Operation Christmas Child since 1993. 

Through Operation Christmas Child, families and individuals of all ages have the opportunity to be part of a simple, hands-on project that can transform the lives of children and families as whole communities have the opportunity for further change through other development projects.

HOW TO PACK A SHOEBOX

The shoebox/es you pack will very likely be the first gift the child has ever received. One more box = one more child reached with the unconditional love of God.

GRAB A SHOEBOX

Packs of pre-printed shoeboxes can be purchased at the foyer of Tim Winton Lecture Theatre after Sunday Service.  Or grab any average-size shoebox and cover the box and lid separately with brightly coloured paper. 

CHOOSE BOY OR GIRL

Will you fill your shoebox with gifts for a girl or for a boy? And what age? 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14?
