Changing the World One Shoe Box at a Time


Pack a box.

Your simple act of packing a box and praying for God to use it truly can change a life.  Each shoe box gift becomes a tangible expression of God's love for a child in real need.   Boxes are packed by local churches and then shipped around the world to be distributed through local churches.  Pastors and church leaders share the Gospel with kids and then share shoe boxes as a reminder of God's love and care.  

Boxes and shopping lists are available at all Parkway campuses.

Build a shoe box online.

Can't get out to go shopping?  You can still help share God's love with children around the world even if you don’t have time to shop for and pack an Operation Christmas Child shoe box gift. With a few clicks of your mouse or swipes on your touchscreen, you can build a shoe box online. Make it your own by choosing from a list of gifts*, then add a personal letter and photo. We'll pack your shoe box and send it for you, for a suggested donation of just $25.
