Send Hope – Pack a Gift-Filled Shoebox for Operation Christmas Child

A shoebox sends a message of hope, letting children know God loves them – he has not forgotten them during this time of fear and uncertainty.

We’re excited to be partnering with Operation Christmas Child this year to bring gift-filled shoeboxes to children in need, in over 100 countries around the world.

At face value, your Operation Christmas Child shoebox may just be a cardboard carton filled with toys, soap, and stickers, but by packing a box with Operation Christmas Child you are bringing a message of hope, letting them know God loves them and has not forgotten them during this time of fear and uncertainty.

Where did my box go last year?

Last year, Australia and New Zealand packed a massive 273,160 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes! But have you ever wondered what happens to your box after it’s been packed… or where in the world it ends up?
