Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization.
Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Samaritan's Purse will ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
Each month we are collecting a different category of items. Check out our monthly packing guides for suggestions and guidelines on what to pack.
