Help us spread the Good News and great joy to children in need around the world!

We are so excited to continue packing Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoeboxes this year. With the pandemic, the need has never been greater.  OCC blesses children around the world with gift-filled shoeboxes that become opportunities to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. The boxes contain items like toys, school supplies, personal hygiene items, and clothing.  The boxes are shipped to over 100 counties and distributed to children aged 2-14 to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way.

We have a goal to fill 150 shoebox gifts!
