Operation Christmas Child collects shoebox gifts—filled with fun toys, school supplies and hygiene items—and delivers them to children in need around the world to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.

The box you send is the only box they will ever receive so make it great! This operation is the best and I encourage everyone to spread Gods love to these children, and if you aren't religious, please just spread some of your love to these children. These boxes LITERALLY change lives.

love filling boxes ,

It’s fine.

The app is nice and has updated stories. But most of the buttons will automatically open up a web-browser to open the site so it’s redundant. If you direct back to the app through your phone to open something else it will continue to open more browser windows. Finally, there is an option to ‘fund a shoebox’ and it’s not clear if it’s an outdated shipping price or the cost to fill a shoebox- likely the former.

All my OCC info in one place! Yeah!

I love this app!! All of the latest OCC stories and news with me wherever I go. My favorite part is the news feed. I'm also excited to use the drop-off location search once I have my shoebox packed!
