Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Canadians to bless struggling children in the developing world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and other items. We collect the boxes and distribute them in the name of Jesus Christ to children living in desperate situations.
Operation Christmas Child is an important way to remind children suffering as a result of war, poverty, famine, disease, and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten. Each year, millions of shoeboxes are packed with gifts by people in Canada and nine other “sending” countries, and given to children in more than 100 “receiving” countries.
The Greatest Journey
We also equip local churches and ministry partners to teach our 12-lesson Bible study and evangelism course, The Greatest Journey. Through this teaching ministry, more than 1.8 million children a year are committing their lives to Christ. The course also equips and encourages children to share their faith with family and friends, so even more people can have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
All of this from a simple shoebox!
Shoeboxes are available for pickup anytime during the month of November and are due back the week of November 17-24
Return your shoeboxes during a Sunday morning service, or
Friday, November 22; between 12:00 pm and 8:00 PM
Sunday, November 24 between 12:00PM and 6:00 PM
