Thanks to everyone who packed shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child!

If you still have packed shoeboxes to drop off, please take them to a drop-off location near you.

The last day is Monday, November 23. You can look drop-off locations and schedules on this page: Shoebox Drop-Off Locations

Just email to find

You can also email us any questions you have.

The shoeboxes and the gifts to go inside will be outside, ready for you to pick up and take home. We’d also love to see your photos and videos, and hear your shoebox-packing stories!

Just post them on your FB personal page or email them to and we’ll post them for you.

During last year’s Operation Christmas Child shoebox project, GPC packed 120 shoebox gifts for children in other countries. This year, our goal is 160 shoebox gifts!

Because of covid restrictions, we’ll be doing the project differently.

Later this month, you’ll be able to pick up all the packing supplies you need as well as empty shoeboxes, and pack at home. This is a great at-home activity for the whole family. Stay tuned for details!
