Operation Christmas Child logo
Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, is an opportunity to provide  gifts to children in need around the world this Christmas. Shoeboxes are filled with small toys, hygiene items and school supplies and sent to more than 100 countries as part of an outreach and evangelism program. Here’s how it works.

Four Ways to Participate:

Pack a Shoebox

Pick up an empty shoebox (or several shoeboxes) at Grace on Sundays, Nov. 5-12, and pack it for a child. Return the packed box(es) to Grace on Sundays by Nov. 19.

Build a Box Online

For a suggested donation of $25, Samaritan’s Purse will pack a shoebox for you. Start building your shoebox online.

Packing Party

Attend the Packing Party and help us assemble 1800 shoeboxes! Join us in the Worship Center lobby on Saturday, Nov. 11, from 6-8:30 p.m. Pizza and drinks provided, with a small donation.

Adopt a Box

Each $10 donation to Operation Christmas Child covers the shipping cost of one packed shoebox. Make a donation here.

Bonus Opportunity: OCC Shipping Party

We need volunteers to lift and carry crates of our 1800 shoeboxes onto the truck for Shipping Day after service on Sunday, Nov. 19. Snacks and drinks provided. Please register to let us know you’re coming.
