Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a project of The Samaritan's Purse. OCC collects shoebox gifts that will be delivered to children in need around the world to show God's love. These shoebox gifts are filled with toys, school supplies, clothing and hygiene items.
In 2019, OCC collected over 10.5 million shoeboxes. This means millions of children in over 100 countries will also get the chance to hear about God's love for the first time.
