Operation Christmas Child Exceeds Collection Goal

More than 11 million Children in Need to Receive Gift-filled Shoeboxes

Because of the generosity of donors across the United States, the Operation Christmas Child project of Samaritan’s Purse collected more than 8.7 million shoebox gifts—filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items—for children in need around the world. Combined with shoebox gifts collected from partnering countries in 2015, the ministry is now sending more than 11.2 million shoebox gifts to children in more than 100 countries.
