Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

2020 National Collection Week has Concluded – Thank you to all our volunteers and all those who donated shoeboxes.  12,470 boxes were collected!

What an incredible way to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children all over the world!  Every year GVLC is proud to be a part of Operation Christmas Child, a project of the international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse.

Together we fill shoeboxes with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. These simple gifts go outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
