Operation Christmas Child
Shoebox Ministry

Operation Christmas Child has kicked off the shoebox season and Good Samaritan is getting ready! It is time to distribute shoeboxes and get them filled with simple gifts, a lot of love, and most importantly, the message of Jesus’s love for each recipient. Each box becomes a Gospel Opportunity for children in hard to reach places. We will need lots of hands on volunteers, including strong arms and backs to help move flat cartons into an accessible storage area in October, then load filled cartons into semi-trucks during National Collection Week, November 15-22. We will need lots of people to help with receiving, assisting with processing shoe box drop offs, counting and labeling, and loading boxes into cartons during collection week as well.

Bless Children Around the World Without Leaving Home

Now more than ever, children need great joy! You can give boys and girls in need a tangible expression of God’s love through a gift-filled shoebox packed from your computer or handheld device. In just a few clicks, you can select toys and other fun items to include as well as a letter and photo to delight the heart of a child.

Interested in serving? We ask you to prayerfully consider serving as a volunteer during one of the collection day shifts.

We will need able bodied people who can assist with loading a large transportation truck for the final days as community churches will be dropping off their cartons at our site too! Contact Jil Gertz at lvspeak@cox.net to sign-up or learn more about serving.
