What is Operation Christmas child?
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a ministry that provides Christmas gifts to millions of children each year. In 2021 over 10 million children received a shoebox! In these boxes children receive toys, school supplies, tools, clothes, shoes, and hygiene items. Many of the children receiving a shoebox have very little if anything and many have never received a gift before. Operation Christmas Child is not just about a box of toys, it is about something much bigger, Jesus. With each box that is given a child gets the opportunity to hear about Jesus and know that God loves them. What a beautiful way to reach the world for Jesus!
