Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Their 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. These simple gifts are shipped 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.
Crosspoint has been supporting this ministry for many years and our annual Shoebox Drive is now underway! Shoeboxes and instructions are available for you to pick up at Crosspoint.
All filled shoeboxes need to be returned no later than November 14th.
If you wish, you may build shoeboxes online through the Samaritan’s Purse website. It’s SUPER easy! Each shoebox can be built for a suggested donation of $25. Find out how here.
