Operation Christmas Child
(October to November)
Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on project that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes packed by Canadians. It is one way to remind children suffering as a result of war, poverty, famine, disease, and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten.
 
Boys and girls receive shoe box gifts and this connection provides other opportunities for follow-up discipleship programs, where they learn to follow Christ and share Him with others.
Consider putting together a box for a little girl or boy this Christmas!
