For the third year in a row, our team packed 150 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child!
Across the U.S., the project collected over 9.3 million shoebox gifts in 2022. Combined with those collected from partnering countries in 2022, the ministry is now sending nearly 10.6 million shoebox gifts to children worldwide. In 2022, 252,022 shoebox gifts for children in seven countries across Eastern Europe, Africa, and Central Asia!
Every shoebox is a little different. Our shoeboxes are filled to the brim with toys, hygiene products, school supplies, crafts, and clothes.
We prioritize team-building events each quarter to emphasize the importance of comradery and community outreach. Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child is an organization we continuously run back to taking part in.
