Operation Christmas Child National Collection Week

Operation Christmas Child

What is Operation Christmas Child?


Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization.  Whose mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes to be filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children with the Good News of Jesus Christ.  We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.



The Amazing Journey of a Shoebox Gift Begins with You and Results in Evangelism, Discipleship, and Multiplication.


Every year, Operation Christmas Child’s National Collection Week takes place the third week in November when nearly 5,000 drop-off locations are open across the country.

New Beginning Community Ministries is excited to partner with Samaritan’s Purse this Christmas season to help spread the joy of the gospel!  So please stop by during one of our designated drop-off times above to bless a precious child by sharing the Love of God through a shoebox gift.
