Island Community Church in Islamorada supporting Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child - Shoebox gifts for Children all around the world
Skip Navigation

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled 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. We ship these simple gifts 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.



Our students at Island Christian School are dedicated to pack 200 boxes this year to reach out to the children all over the world that have not heard of Jesus Christ. What we need most is for you to pray and decide HOW MANY CHILDREN YOU would like to help us reach!  


Thank you for helping!
