Operation Christmas Child leaders in Collin County are celebrating major milestones reached in 2022. Through the generosity of area volunteers, shoebox gifts – packed with fun toys, school supplies, hygiene items – are bringing joy to children in need across the world. Each shoebox gift is a tangible expression of God’s love for the child and is often the first gift has child received.
10,599,907 shoebox gifts were donated world-wide
9,303,130 shoebox gifts in the US
820,198 shoebox gifts in Texas/Louisiana
23,840 shoebox gifts in Collin County South
Since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has distributed shoebox gifts to more than 170 countries and this year delivered its 200-millionth shoebox to a young girl in Ukraine.
Shoebox gifts bring smiles and laughter to children but more importantly each gift brings…
Evangelism – Every child will know Jesus loves them.
Discipleship – Greatest Journey for children and families to faith in Christ.
Multiplication – Changed lives now discipling others.
