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

What a privilege to see how the Lord has grown the ministry and used it to share the Gospel with millions of children! Read the full article on the Samaritan’s Purse website.
