Operation Christmas Child

As a Collection Center we are privileged to be a part of the mission of Samaritan’s Purse to provide shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies along with the Good News of Jesus to children around the world.  In 2018 Operation Christmas Child distributed 8.8 million filled boxes to children worldwide affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
Empty shoeboxes are available for pickup starting November 1st of each year, with the 2019 Collection Week taking place November 18–25. Please remember to include your $9 shipping donation with each box, donations may be cash or checks made payable to Samaritan's Purse. To volunteer during Collection Week please contact Ron Swineheart, 417-483-2189.
