Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse and is designed to give children in over 100 countries a Christmas gift in a shoe box filled with toys, games, toiletry items, etc and the Gospel. We delivered 8.2 million shoe boxes last year to children throughout the world.

In Central Indiana , we collected 32,607 shoe boxes in 2009. Our goal is to increase that to 40,000. As a result, we need people like you to help us reach more children. Former Indianapolis Colts Head Coach, Tony Dungy was gracious enough to record a PSA for our organization.


Below are some opportunities for you to get involved with this great organization. But don't limit yourself to just these! If you're excited about their mission, give them a call to see what other needs you may be able to fill. Thanks for serving and have fun making a difference!
