Operation Christmas Child

HOW TO PACK A SHOEBOX: The shoebox you pack will very likely be the first gift the child has ever received. One more box = one more child reached with the unconditional love of God.

GRAB A SHOEBOX: Packs of pre-printed shoeboxes can be ordered here or grab any average-size shoebox and cover the box and lid separately with brightly coloured paper. Pre-printed shoeboxes can also be collected from Lifepointe on a Sunday or during the week.

CHOOSE BOY OR GIRL: Will you fill your shoebox with gifts for a girl or for a boy? And what age? 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14

SHOEBOX LABELS & DONATIONS: Order your labels and donate $10 for each shoebox you are going to pack here. Follow Your Box and see where it goes!

FILL EACH SHOEBOX WITH SIMPLE GIFTS: Include something from each of the 6 categories.
Something to wear
Something to play with
Something for school
Something to love
Something special
Something for personal hygiene

PRAY FOR THE CHILD: Pray for the child who will receive your shoebox gift. Include a personal note of encouragement and a photo.

DROP YOUR SHOEBOX OFF: On the 29th October, Lifepointe will be collecting all of the boxes and sending them out that week, so if you are able, please bring something by that date.

SPREAD THE WORD: Post a picture of your shoebox on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #onemorebox and spread the word.
