For over 25 years, Samaritan’s Purse have been collecting shoeboxes filled with gifts and delivering them to children in need around the world. Each box is an opportunity for a boy or girl to experience the love of God in a tangible way and to hear the Gospel. Many boys and girls who receive shoebox gifts also enrol in a follow-up discipleship program, The Greatest Journey, where they learn to follow Christ and share Him with others. It all starts with a simple gift.
Here at Chapel Hill Uniting Church, we have been participating in Operation Christmas Child for quite a few years, and it’s on again this year. Filling a shoebox to bring joy to a needy child is a lot of fun, and it’s not difficult! If you need more information, contact Denise on 0438 138 227.
Choose a boy or girl and age group (2-4, 5-9 or 10-14) and fill your shoebox with gifts. Click here for gift ideas.
FOLLOW YOUR BOX – HOW TO GET TRACKING LABELS
If you give the requested $10 per shoebox donation online you will receive a unique barcoded tracking label for each of your shoeboxes. During processing, the barcode is scanned and a link is emailed to you so that you can track each of your shoeboxes online and see where it goes. To Follow Your Box, donate online at operationchristmaschild.org.au/shoeboxdonations.
