Thank you for helping to share the gift of the Gospel and make a difference this Christmas through Operation Christmas Child! You gave 9,910 shoeboxes, exceeding this year’s goal! This year was one of the largest collections in the New Orleans area ever!!
These shoebox gifts have been put together by church and community groups, and families just like yours. Since 1993, more than 113 million boys and girls in over 150 countries have experienced Godʼs love through Operation Christmas Child. These children have received gift filled shoeboxes and have been invited to enroll in a Bible study program written in their own language. Many of these children are now sharing their faith with family and friends! Please pray for God to continue to use these shoebox gifts to change lives all over the world! If you made a donation online, you can discover the destination of your gift! Click here to follow your shoebox around the world.
Good News. Great Joy!
The National Collection week may be over, but you can still help share God’s love with children around the world through an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift. With a few clicks of your mouse or swipes on your touchscreen, you can build a shoebox online. Make it your own by choosing from a list of gifts, then add a personal letter and photo. We’ll pack your shoebox and send it for you, for a suggested donation of just $30.
From Virtual to Vital
Each shoebox gift built online will become a tangible expression of God’s love that will be given to children in real need.
