Together, we can bring smiles, laughter, and a message of hope to countless children in need. Join us today and be a part of something truly special.

Pack a Box

Packing an Operation Christmas Child box brings a multitude of benefits, not only to the recipient child but also to the giver. It’s an opportunity to share love, joy, and hope with a child in need, brightening their holiday season and offering a sense of belonging. For the sender, it fosters a sense of compassion, gratitude, and the joy of giving, reminding us of the true spirit of the season.

Build a Shoebox Online

When you Build a Shoebox Online, it provides believers in remote regions a creative way to share the Good News in a culturally sensitive manner. Online boxes are carefully prepared, abiding by strict customs regulations to safeguard partners who will deliver the gifts, as well as the boys and girls who receive them.

Operation Christmas Child Stories

For Ann Loffredo, Operation Christmas Child is a year-round project. Working on several throughout the year, she adds fun gifts to them until each one is complete and ready to send. Not only does she pack shoeboxes, however, she also writes letters to each one and prays over them, and even received a letter back once from a child in Rwanda thanking her for his toys.
