OCC is a BIG DEAL here at Christ First! We love spreading the love and Good News of Jesus Christ to children around the world...one shoebox at a time! Each year, we send over 2,500 shoeboxes of toys, hygiene items, clothing, school supplies & handwritten notes to boys and girls in various countries affected by poverty, famine, war, natural disaster, and disease. And it would not be possible without the dedicated volunteers who sacrifice their time, talents, and treasures (resources) to facilitate the process.

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1993 Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 168 million shoeboxes to children in over 160 countries and territories. For many of these children, the gift‑filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. And for every 100 shoeboxes received, 15 children come to know Jesus Christ for the very first time.
