West Central La team, which is Sabine, Red River, Natchitoches, and Winn Parishes, is a part of this project. The goal this year is to collect 18,663 quality packed shoeboxes. Come help us give to a child that has never received a gift and share the “Greatest Gift of All.”

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse that delivers shoeboxes filled with toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to children around the world as a tangible expression of God’s love through this hands of local partners to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, God’s Greatest Gift.

Since 1993, more than 200 million children in over 170 countries and territories have received a shoebox gift. Shoebox gifts are collected in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Finland, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. In addition to the millions of shoebox packers, a network of more than 15,000 volunteers- 9,000 in the U.S. and 6,000 worldwide-serve year-round to carry out this project.
