The gift-filled shoeboxes you pack help change the lives of children like seven-year-old Terry in Namibia. Terry had prayed to God for a Bible, and when he opened his shoebox, he couldn’t wait to show everyone the Bible he found packed inside.
Don’t forget that you can follow your shoebox and discover the country where it’s distributed. Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes are sent to more than 100 countries!
Churches and groups of all sizes collect boxes from their communities. Some churches also serve as drop-off locations for shoeboxes the third week of November every year.
