Operation Christmas Child

Good News! Great Joy! 

Since 1993, God has used Samaritan’s Purse to deliver over 200 million Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts to children in need and disciple 50 million of these boys and girls.

Operation Christmas Child delivers gifts to children across the globe — reaching those suffering from natural disasters, disease, war, terrorism, poverty, and famine. Each box contains gifts, toys, hygiene items, and a Gospel storybook in the child’s language.

You can shine the light of the Gospel around the world through the power of a simple gift! 

  • Shoeboxes will be available October 15 – November 20 on the Rea Road and Hwy 51 concourses and Entrance 1. You may return your filled shoebox to the racks in these locations.

UPDATE: Due to campus construction, Calvary will NOT be a community drop-off location for boxes this year.

  • How to Pack a Shoebox 
    Fill a box with gifts for a boy or girl, ages 2–14. Get updated tips on what to pack (and what NOT to pack) in your shoebox. Then, drop off filled and labeled boxes on the racks in the Galleria.
  • Pack a Shoebox ONLINE (Recommended)
