OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

The journey to helping a child this Christmas begins here. 

We are partnering with Operation Christmas Child once again to provide shoeboxes filled with; small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; as well as to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.  2020 has been an especially rough year for everyone, but especially in many of these regions.


COLLECTION DEADLINE IS NOVEMBER 15TH
