Operation Christmas Child provides an opportunity for individuals of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on missions project that reaches out to suffering children while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas- Jesus Christ, God's greatest gift. This program sends a message of hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes and Christian literature. In 2012, Operation Christmas Child collected over 9 million shoeboxes worldwide and distributed them to children in about 95 countries. Operation Christmas Child has distributed over 93 million shoeboxes since 1993. In 2013, the shoeboxes from our area will go to Albania, Brazil, Bolivia, Haiti, Niger, Kenya, Togo, Malaysia, Rwanda, Uganda, Colombia, and Suriname.

In addition to the shoebox gifts, which may be the only Christmas gift a child has ever received, Operation Christmas Child provides a discipleship program for each child, explaining the message of salvation and hope in Christ Jesus. Over 2 million children have given their lives to Christ through the ministry of the shoeboxes and the discipleship program.

The North Central Wisconsin Operation Christmas Child Collection Center is located in Plover WI and has relay centers in Eagle River, Spencer, Stetsonville, Wisconsin Rapids, Waupaca, and Wausau. All together, we collected 8,700 shoebox gifts from people in North Central Wisconsin in 2012. Our goal for 2013 is to collect over 9,000 shoebox gifts to send to children around the world. That is about one shoebox gift for every thirty people that live in the area.

Operation Christmas Child has local representatives around the country to assist you or your group. These representatives can help you get involved with Operation Christmas Child in your area, and they are available to speak at group or church meetings or give media interviews. For more information, go to www.samaritanspurse.org.

You can make your donation online and track your shoebox gift to see where it is delivered, or you can put together a shoebox online as well. For more information, go to www.samaritanspurse.org.

You can send us your gift-filled shoeboxes year-round. Our international headquarters in Boone, NC, accepts shoebox gifts all year long. Just mail or ship your completed box to:
