Every year we have the privilege to partner with Samaritanʼs Purse to change lives of children and whole families and to share God's love by collecting filled shoeboxes of fun and needed items to children across the globe. Since 1993, more than 188 million children in over 170 countries have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox. The project delivers not only joy of what for many kids is their first gift ever; but also gives a tangible expression of Godʼs love  .
