Operation Christmas Child

It's that time of year again!

Posted on October 15, 2014

Our shipment of Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes has arrived! Pick up your box (or boxes) in the Atrium this Sunday. If everyone on Sunday packed just one shoebox, we would be sharing the joy of Christmas with over 700 children in need.

Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan's Purse, brings hope and joy to children around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes and the message of God's unconditional love.

Ready to get started?

1) Pick up your empty shoebox.

2) Choose to pack your shoebox for a boy or girl, ages two to four, five to nine or 10 to 14.

3) Fill your shoebox with a well balanced variety of school supplies, toys and hygiene products. Include a personal note and a photo if you wish. Do not include items that could break, leak, melt, scare or harm a child.

4) Donate $7 for every shoebox you pack to help cover the cost of shipping. Donations can be made online by credit card, or you can enclose cash or a cheque.

5) Return your shoebox to St. Paul's by Sunday, November 21.
