Operation Christmas Child is a Samaritan’s Purse project that sends shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies worldwide to reach children with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Athey Creek is an official drop-off location, meaning we will be collecting boxes from our congregation and the surrounding area. We will begin distributing boxes before and after services on October 15th and 16th. Pack your boxes with toys, hygiene items, shoes, and art supplies. Please include an additional nine-dollar donation for shipping costs.
Once fully packed, the final week to return shoeboxes is during National Collection Week, November 14th-21st. Athey Creek will have specific hours during National Collection Week to collect shoeboxes (see below). Please visit the Samaritan’s Purse website for more information about how to pack a shoebox or about Operation Christmas Child.
