Operation Christmas Child Partnership

Hobby Lobby is once again partnering with the largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child. Through this international program, families, churches and individuals fill shoeboxes with toys, school supplies and hygiene items, creating gifts that can make a significant difference in the lives of hurting and vulnerable children around the world.

Customers can purchase shoebox-size plastic containers and items to pack in the shoebox gifts at all Hobby Lobby stores through the middle of November.

“We are delighted to partner with Operation Christmas Child to help show God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world,” said David Green, Founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby. “This initiative will touch countless lives with a Christmas gift and the greatest gift of all–the good news of Jesus Christ.”

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization headed by Franklin Graham. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered gift-filled shoeboxes to more than 147 million children in over 150 countries and territories.

Shoebox drop-off locations across the nation will be posted online beginning October 1 on the Operation Christmas Child website. For more information, visit www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.
