Missions Focus - Operation Christmas Child

It’s time for the annual Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Collection. In addition to bringing great joy to millions of boys and girls in need around the world, gifts are accompanied by the Good News of Jesus Christ. We praise God that over the last three decades 50 million children have been discipled. In the past 14 years alone, over 17 million children have made decisions for Christ.

The amazing journey of a shoebox gift begins with you and will help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to remote areas in many countries. This year our SWFL regional area has a goal to distribute 12,012 boxes. Shoeboxes will be available at New Hope on October 1 and collection of the filled boxes will be November 13-20. If you prefer, you will be able to place your order for shoeboxes online by visiting samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child starting November 1. Remember, your online fee of $25 includes the $10 cost to mail the shoeboxes. May you be blessed for your participation!
