It’s exciting to be partnering with Operation Christmas Child this year to bring gift-filled shoeboxes to children in need, in over 100 countries around the world.

At face value, your Operation Christmas Child shoebox may just be a cardboard carton filled with toys, soap, and stickers, but by packing a box with Operation Christmas Child you are bringing a message of hope, letting them know God loves them and has not forgotten them during this time of fear and uncertainty.
