Thank you to all who packed an Operation Christmas Child box this year. The effort was a great success. We had a total of 53 boxes that are now on there way. We have requested tracking information, so we will keep you updated on where our boxes were sent.
Please keep this wonderful outreach in your hearts and prayers! Now is a very important time to pray for Samaritan’s Purse and the many 1,000s of people who help coordinate this effort:
- Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 178 million shoebox gifts to children in more than 160 countries and territories.
- More than 10.5 million shoebox gifts were collected worldwide in 2019, with more than 8.9 million collected in the U.S.
- In 2020, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect enough shoebox gifts to reach 11 million
- Delivered into the hands of children through local churches, every shoebox gift is an opportunity to share about Jesus Christ and God’s love.
