And when a child opens a shoe box, they’re opening more than a present lovingly prepared just for them. They’re opening up their community to a world of life-changing opportunities.
Operation Christmas Child has had amazing results over the years and many have testified regarding its impact both on domestic churches (who collect boxes) as well as overseas churches and communities where the boxes are distributed to children in need. The shoe boxes help our local partners build relationships and establish connections in new communities.
Through Operation Christmas Child, our partners are also empowered to identify and meet basic needs in the communities such as the need for education, safe water and sanitation.
