Don't forget— no more toothpaste and candy this year.
Candy and toothpaste have become items of regulatory issue, often causing complications with the delivery of shoeboxes.
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to share the good news of Jesus Christ using simple shoebox gifts as a platform to open doors to share the Gospel. Including these items are increasingly proving to prevent entry into a large number of our recipient countries and blocking the opportunity to share God’s love with children in need.
We are so thankful for all of you who pack shoebox gifts to share the love of Christ with children all over the world. We ask for your prayers during this transition so that we can continue to reach millions of children with the hope and love of Jesus Christ through simple shoebox gifts.
