Operation Christmas Child

Each November our Children's Ministries collect SHOE BOXES to be sent to children around the world.   Please use the following instructions and bring the box in by November 24, 2013!

1. Shoe Box
Use an empty shoebox (standard size, please) or a small plastic container. You can wrap the box (lid separately), but wrapping is not required. Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift.

2. Boy or Girl
Determine whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, and the child’s age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Print out the appropriate boy/girl label by downloading the artwork to the right. Mark the correct age category on the label, and tape the label to the top of your box.


Fill the box with a variety of gifts that will bring delight to a child. Use the gift ideas provided on the bottom of this page. Please include at least one item a child can immediately embrace such as a stuffed toy, doll, ball or toy truck.

4. Include $7 Donation
Please donate $7 or more for each shoebox you prepare to help cover shipping and other project costs and place it in an envelope on top of the gift items inside your box. If you or your family are preparing more than one shoebox, please make one combined donation.

5. Drop Off
Place a rubber band around each closed shoebox and drop it off at the collection center nearest you during our collection week, November 24 at Lewisburg Alliance Church.
