Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Local churches like North Metro join the mission by volunteering and providing shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. The amazing journey of a simple shoebox gift results in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication.

North Metro also will be serving at the Processing Center on November 29. Anyone 13 or older is welcome to sign up to serve. It’s a great place for families or groups to help move these shoeboxes along to their destinations!
