Operation Christmas Child Samaritan's Purse

Operation Christmas Child Samaritan's Purse

Who is Operation Christmas Child?

Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. OCC’s mission is to spread the good news about Jesus, to children around the world. Every year, families donate shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts to OCC drop-off centers. The shoeboxes are transported to children throughout the world along with The Greatest Journey, a children’s Bible study that teaches the love of Jesus.

Where is Operation Christmas Child?

Millions of shoeboxes are collected during National Collection Week, but before these precious gifts can bring hope and joy to a child around the world each one has to be carefully inspected and made ready for overseas shipment by volunteers like you! You can help prepare shoeboxes for delivery by volunteering along with your friends and family at one of our eight processing centers across the United States.

How do I get involved?

Please contact Nikki Rosenberg if you are interested in participating in Operation Christmas Child.



Your support and contribution will guarantee the success of the organization and purpose.
