Pack an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox to Send a Message of Hope

By Hope 103.2Friday 13 Sep 2019Hope Afternoons

We’re excited to be partnering with Operation Christmas Child this year to bring gift-filled shoeboxes to children in need in over 100 countries around the world.

At face value, your Operation Christmas Child shoebox may just be a cardboard carton filled with toys, soap, and stickers, but by packing a box with Operation Christmas Child you are bringing hope, healing and sending a message to children all over the world they are loved and valued.
