Christmas Child workshops set

Published 9:12 am Wednesday, September 6, 2023

The Samaritan’s Purse project Operation Christmas Child collects shoeboxes filled with fun toys, school supplies and personal care items and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. 

Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 209 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 170 countries and territories. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. 

In 2023, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect enough shoebox gifts to reach another 11 million children with a shoebox gift.
