FBC is Community Drop-Off Location for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes

OCC_logoThis fall, you are invited to make a difference in the life of a child by packing a shoebox with Operation Christmas Child!

Shoebox Collection Week is Nov. 16-23, and for the first time, you can drop your boxes off at First Baptist Church in Mountain View.

The world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child, uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered gift-filled shoeboxes to more than 124 million children affected by war, poverty, natural disasters, and other crises in more than 150 countries and territories. This nondenominational ministry is part of Samaritan’s Purse, led by Franklin Graham. For more on this mission endeavor, visit

When you pack a simple shoebox, you will impact a child for eternity! This is a great project for your family, community group or organization, Sunday School class and church! Fill the shoebox (which can be wrapped with the lid separate) with small toys, crayons and other school supplies, hygiene products and a special “wow” gift like a doll, stuffed animal, soccer ball or outfit. For gift ideas and how to pack for certain age groups (2-4, 5-9, 10-14 for boys and girls), visit or visit the local Facebook event page “Operation Christmas Child – Mountain View Shoebox Drop Off”.
