Shoebox Ministries

Shoebox ministries, formally known as Operation Christmas Child, is a project of Samaritan's Purse. Volunteers assemble shoeboxes throughout the year with gifts, hygenic items and school supplies. These volunteers are encouraged to include a note in the shoebox and pray for the child who will receive the shoebox. Leaders from Samaritan's Purse then deliver the shoeboxes, hosting child-friendly outreach events, sharing the Gospel and blessing the children. Shoeboxes are delivered to children in more than 100 countries.
