A project of Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child collects shoeboxes filled with gifts to send to children living in poverty-stricken or war-torn countries.

Since its start in 1993, the program has collected and distributed over 100 million shoebox gifts for needy children in more than 130 counties and territories.

Shoeboxes can contain things like toothpaste, toys and school supplies.

Shoeboxes can be dropped off at an Operation Christmas Child truck, located next to the Christian Ministries building on the College of the Ozarks campus.
