Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations worldwide through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love. Gift boxes from Northwoods families have reached the far corners of the world, and there have been exciting stories of grace and impact. We’ve even had a gift box recipient visit Peoria and have sent a distribution team to give out boxes in India!

Every child who receives an Operation Christmas Child gift also receives the Gospel message in their language. Operation Christmas Child reports that an additional nine people will read that message. Also, many recipients will have the opportunity to participate in a 12-part discipleship program through local churches connected with Samaritan’s Purse around the world.

Fill A Shoebox

Pray

Pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.

Please remember to include $7 for shipping or go to the www.samaritanspurse.org website to process your box online. 

If you’re pressured for time, or just can’t get your own box together for some reason, you can still participate! Age and gender-specific pre-filled boxes are available at Foundations Resource Center for $27, which includes the shipping fee.

Follow Your Box

Discover the destination of your box by using EZ Give through the Samaritan’s Purse website. This easy online payment option allows you to use a credit card to pay the shipping charges and print a bar code label that tracks your box. After the boxes have shipped overseas, you will receive an email telling you the destination of your gift!
