Through the ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization headed up by Franklin Graham, Operation Christmas Child has delivered more than 150 million shoe boxes filled with toys, personal hygiene items, booklets, school supplies, and other items not readily available locally to many of the recipients. What started in 1993 as a relatively small campaign to help homeless children in Romania has expanded into one of the largest relief and evangelism programs of its kind (180 countries). It isn’t too early to start thinking about how you and your family can participate – Operation Christmas Child is your opportunity to impact young lives as well as demonstrate to your family the real meaning of Christmas: giving.
In 2010 we made 250 boxes, in 2011 350, in 2012 we dedicated 475, over 500 in 2013, 2014 and over 600 in 2015. For 2016 and 2017 we exceeded 700! And in 2018 we reached 909 shoeboxes. Each box represents a child who will receive the good news of Jesus Christ.
We now contribute to this wonderful ministry directly through Samaritan’s Purse. (see below).
