Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization. Our 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. We 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.

Shoebox gifts demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. By partnering with the local church worldwide, each shoebox gift is a powerful tool for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. The $9 per shoe box is a suggested donation. This amount is critical to cover project costs involved in collecting, processing and shipping shoebox gifts to over 100 countries. It also provides for ministry materials such as the Greatest Gift Gospel booklet and the Ministry Partner Guide.
