Operation Christmas Child



Since 1993, more than 168 million boys and girls in over 160 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.

At Ridgeway, we take part in Operation Christmas Child. This year, our goal is to pack 300 shoeboxes. Get your children, grandchildren, neighbors and friends involved. It only takes a few minutes and it can change a life forever.

You can pick up shoeboxes in both lobbies between now and November 1.


Use these great resources to aid you in packing, personalizing, and tracking your shoeboxes!
