Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, providing gifts for children living in poverty each Christmas around the world. This year, your shoe boxes from the Life 96.5 area will go to work and bless children in Mexico and also Native American children right here in the U.S. Thank you for all the ways you have blessed children with your gifts. This year 25,822 Shoe Boxes were donated and collected at Abiding Savior Free Lutheran Church! Thank you for your generosity and for being the hands and feet of Jesus!

    The Episcopal Church of St. Matthew – Tucson, AZ – has been contributing to the Shoebox Ministry for year. I was notified, by one of our members, that our boxes (packed in 2017) were declined. Can you give me any information on this??

      Hi Donna! Your best bet would be to connect with someone directly at Operation Christmas Child or Samaritan’s Purse.

    Hi! Do you have Christmas shoeboxes giving also in the Philippines? We’re trying to rebuild our sisters/brothers together with their families in Christ for 3 years already. We built 3 churches already. As a faithful servant of Christ my dream is to really let these people feel the love and care of our God and Saviour thru a simple gift most especially fornthe kids.
    It’s been 3 years already that i kep on praying that God will lead me into some organization that can help me materialize my dreams.
    My husband and I have already planned for the feeding and sports feast this coming December in Southern Cotabato. December 25 we will be having Christmas chorale or musical activities for the people to really remember and embrace the true meaning of Christmas as children of God. Then gift giving…….
    I am praying while i am writing this to you hoping that you will open your door to help me and my husband make this children happier this coming Christmas. A simple gesture of kindness can make a big difference in tis world.
    I really admired and so proud an organization like yours doing such tremendous act of generosity, kindness, love and above all sharing and spreading God’s words to others.
    Thank you and more power to ya’ll. God will bless you a thousand folds back because you are one the best people in that God created in this world.
