Operation Christmas Child 2020 gears up for the annual gift drive. Prayerfully consider filling your own gift box today!
Operation Christmas Child (OCC for short) is the annual gift drive for Samaritan's Purse. Samaritan's Purse - whose mission is to "meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ " collects boxes of goodies that have been filled and donated by individuals in churches around the globe and distributes them to children of all races and creeds and in the process shares the gospel of Jesus Christ to these children and their families.
This year consider sending a box online! No additional shipping fees and, in most cases, where COVID Restrictions prevent boxes entering the country, goods are purchased in country, increasing the impact of the gift by supporting that country's econony! Click this link to get started!
OCC gives transports and distributes MILLIONS of boxes internationally every year to children who may not have ever recieved a gift in their lives. In the process, they learn about The Greatest Gift ever given- Jesus! (John 3:16)
