Join us in sharing the power of a simple gift with children in need as we embark on our annual Pack-a-Shobox Campaign for Operation Christmas Child.

Operation Christmas Child (a division of Samaritan’s Purse) gives gift-filled shoeboxes to children struggling in the developing world. To date, over 135 million shoeboxes have been distributed bringing a message of joy and hope to kids around the globe.

Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian humanitarian organization that has been providing aid to hurting people suffering from war, disease, natural disasters, and famine since 1970. 

Our Emergency Disaster Relief program delivers urgent and essential food, water, physical, medical assistance, temporary shelter, and more. Our medical teams were in New York assisting with the Covid crisis, we were sandbagging and damming up the roads during last year’s flood in Hudson. We meet critical needs here in Canada, as well as, around the world in order to give people a chance to rebuild their lives. 

Please join us this year and pack a shoebox. Together we can give the children hope. This year’s shoebox destinations from the province of Quebec are Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guinea, Gambia, Guinea Bissau, Senegal, and Sierra Leone.  

What goes in a box? 
School supplies, clothing, shoes, toys, arts n’ crafts kits, bead kits, hair accessories, jewelry, tools, hygiene & sanitary items (non-liquid), puzzles, games, sports items, and so much more! 

What doesn’t go in a box? 
War toys, skulls, and scary items, anything that can leak or break, no food, no plants, no liquids, gels or pastes, no traditional playing cards or gambling-related items.
