Operation Christmas Child reaches out to children around the world in desperate situations, bringing joy and hope through gift-filled shoeboxes, reminding them that they are loved and not forgotten. Shoeboxes are available in the foyer on Sundays (starting Oct 23) and during the week. Watch the video below to see how your involvement makes a difference!
Filled shoeboxes must be returned to the church by Sunday, November 20. Alternatively, shoeboxes can be packed online at www.packabox.ca.
This year, for the first time, shoeboxes from Canada are being sent to the Philippines. Ukraine and countries in Central America and West Africa will also be receiving our shoeboxes.
