Operation Christmas Child – Samaritans Purse

What is Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Canadians to bless struggling children in the developing world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and other items. We collect the boxes and distribute them in the name of Jesus Christ to children living in desperate situations.

Operation Christmas Child is an important way to remind children suffering as a result of war, poverty, famine, disease, and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten. Each year, millions of shoeboxes are packed with gifts by people in Canada and nine other “sending” countries, and given to children in more than 100 “receiving” countries.


Pick up your empty shoeboxes in the foyer on Sunday mornings.

Deadline to drop off the packed shoeboxes at Grace Point Church is by noon on Sunday, November 17.
