Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes

 Thank You to everyone who helped us pack shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child!  In 2020, we shipped 67 shoeboxes to the Dominican Republic. 

Located in the Caribbean Sea, the Dominican Republic occupies the eastern side of Hispaniola, the island it shares with Haiti. It is known for its tourism and the merengue dance. Samaritan’s Purse began delivering Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts to children here in 1999. Ten years later, we launched The Greatest Journey follow-up discipleship program for shoebox recipients in the nation.

We have already started collecting for 2021! Please leave item donations in the box near the mailboxes. We will also need to collect $9 for shipping for each box. Most importantly, please pray for this mission and the recipients of the boxes!
