Operation Christmas Child

Changing lives one shoebox gift at a time!

For the last few years Valley Life Church and Santa Clara Christian School have been partnering with Operation Christmas Child to provide shoebox gifts to children in developing countries, so that they can have the opportunity to celebrate Christmas and hear the story of God's love through Jesus.

This year we have the opportunity to either pack a shoebox gift on our own, pack shoebox gifts together, or both.

On Sunday, November 15, we will be collecting and packing Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts at our worship gathering. Our goal is at least 100 boxes. We will be filling boxes as a part of our worship gathering. Please click here to sign-up and to let us know what you would like to bring to contribute to the packing party.

We will be focusing on the 5–9 year old age group for our packing party. If you want to provide a shoebox gift for a younger or older child, please pack that at home with your family and add it to the collection on Sunday, November 15. 

Please remember to provide a check for $7 made out to Samaritan's Purse (OCC on the memo line) for each box you bring in. We will have computers for you to make online donations at the packing party.

Please visit the Operation Christmas Child website for ideas and instructions on packing a shoebox gift. Thank you for your generosity and participation in helping children in need experience the love of Jesus.
