The Christmas season is always so busy, its easy to forget about those in need.

That’s why every year, VFC participates in Operation Christmas Child during the month of July. Instead of collecting shoeboxes in November and December, we go ahead and prepare ours ahead of time!

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a global Christmas gift exchange project operated by Samaritan’s Purse. Each year it opens thousands of locations, typically at churches or schools, to collect shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, personal items, and other gifts. These boxes are then distributed as Christmas gifts, accompanied by the gospel. From 1993 through 2012, some 100 million gift boxes have been handed out in more than 130 countries.
