October 17 - November 13, 2016

Deadline to turn in filled shoe boxes at PCBC is November 13.

Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love. People of all ages can be involved in this simple, hands-on mission project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas—Jesus Christ.

  • Use an empty shoebox (average size) or a small plastic container. Determine whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl and the age category. (2–4, 5–9, or 10–14). Fill the box with a variety of gifts that will bring delight to a child. (School supplies, small toys, personal hygiene items, hard candy. Please no toy guns, knives or military figures or breakable items.)
  • Include a personal note to the child and $7 to cover the cost of shipping. Make checks payable to Samaritan’s Purse.
