This year, more than ever, Operation Christmas Child is seeking to spread Good News and great joy by delighting millions of precious children with shoebox gifts.
If physically packing shoobox gifts is difficult for you or your group, Shoebox Online makes it easy to still get involved from home. Simply choose which category to pack for, select your gifts online, make your donation and we’ll pack and your shoebox gifts for you.
Barbara Dobson’s church remains closed making their usual way of packing challenging. They were delighted to discover Shoebox Online. She shares her experience:
Rest assured, the safety and health of children receiving Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts, our volunteers, staff, and our ministry partners is our top priority. Our UK team are monitoring the government guidelines and modifying our processes accordingly. Globally, we are also working with our international volunteer leadership teams in 119 countries to assess ministry activity and make the necessary modifications.
You'll be giving unimaginable excitement and hope to children in need around the world.
Partnering with Operation Christmas Child ensures shoeboxes get to hard-to-reach groups.
