Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the message of God’s unconditional love. It provides

an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on project of Samaritan’s Purse that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas – Jesus Christ. To date, Operation Christmas Child has collected and distributed over 135-million shoe box gifts worldwide. Each shoe box gift is filled with hygiene items, school supplies, toys, and is given to children regardless of gender, race, religion, or age.

In 2019 Living Hope Ministries collectivly brought in 199 boxes, to GOD be the glory! Thank you to ALL of our volunteers and the teams that work behind the scenes to see this ministry is so successful! This year we again are a drop off center for OCC and we look forward to serving our community in this manor. If you need to turn in any boxes that you may have gotten somewhere we can take them in for you!
