October 28, 2023Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, delivers gift-filled shoeboxes to millions of children in need each year. For 30 years, Collin County families have packed shoebox gifts for boys and girls around the world. One of these gifts reached Moises in El Salvadore when he was a young boy. Moises shares in this video how the simple gift had a life-changing impact.

The Collin County South chapter of Operation Christmas Child wants to encourage residents as they kick off the upcoming collection season to fill more than 25,000 shoeboxes with fun toys, school supplies and personal care items—contributing to the global goal of reaching 11 million children in Jesus’ Name.

During Operation Christmas Child’s National Collection Week Nov. 13 – 20, residents can bring gift-filled shoeboxes to multiple Collin County drop-off locations or scan   

For more information, visit Participants can donate $10 per shoebox gift online through “Follow Your Box” and receive a tracking label to discover its destination. Those who prefer the convenience of online shopping can browse to select gifts matched to a child’s specific age and gender, then finish packing the virtual shoebox by adding a photo and personal note of encouragement.
