Operation Christmas Child
Since 1993, more than 168 million boys and girls in over 160 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.
Starting this year, toothpaste and candy are no longer allowed in shoebox gifts, due to increasing customs regulations. See what shoebox recipient Alex has to say about the change, and remember, your simple gifts-packed with love in Jesus' Name-deliver hope and joy to children all around the world.
