Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian relief and development organization that reaches out to children through their annual Operation Christmas Child program that collects gift-filled shoeboxes and distributes them to struggling kids in the developing world.
As a church, from children to seniors, we participate in packing these shoebox gifts. This project is an opportunity to teach our members about giving. It is also a great tool to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. The City Church International serves as a drop-off location for shoeboxes during collection week in November.
