Operation Christmas Child

Our Packing Party for 2023 will be October 30

Our Shoeboxes have been delivered to Burkina Faso.  

Burkina Faso is located in West Africa, it is home to a large rural population that is known to be honest. This fits well since the country’s name means “Land of Incorruptible People.” Samaritan’s Purse started delivering Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts to children here in 1999 and by 2011 began offering them The Greatest Journey, our follow-up discipleship course, that teaches boys and girls how to follow Christ and share Him with others.

Start today by donating items to fill our shoeboxes.
