Christmas – Operation Christmas Child

December 2016

Christmas shoe box gifts have been dropped off over November, with thousands of churches across the UK preparing to send gift-filled shoeboxes to children in need across the world.

As the packing got underway, more than 20 million people worldwide watched Operation Christmas Child videos from Samaritan’s Purse, which showed the joy these boxes brought to children last year.

Each shoebox is packed with toys, hygiene items and school supplies, and this year Samaritan’s Purse is encouraging their supporters to pack a ‘wow item’ — something that a child will immediately love.
