Savvy shoebox packers know that it’s never too early to start shopping, packing, and fundraising for shoebox
gifts. Use our guide to pack quality shoeboxes that are FUN, FULL, and PERSONALIZED so that each is
unique and prayed over. By preparing shoebox gifts all year long, you can send the Good News of Jesus Christ
and the great joy of receiving an Operation Christmas Child shoebox to more boys and girls around the world!

Help Us Do More!

First Baptist Church  |  China, TX

Our goal this year is 50 boxes!

Use our helpful year-round shopping guide to know what to purchase throughout the year as we collect different items!

Some quick tips to remember:

  • When shopping, choose quality items that will last a long time.
  • Don’t miss out on holiday deals after Christmas, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and other major holidays.
  • Take advantage of back-to-school sales in the fall.
  • Check for tax-free weekends in your area to save money when purchasing your shoebox items.
Refer to these two lists below to guide you on gift suggestions for both boy and girl items.
Remember, avoid buying items on the Do Not Include list.

Fund Donations

Our church is also accepting monetary donations for the Christmas Child Fund. If you would like to donate money instead of items you may give your donation in-person at the church or give online through the link below. Choose Operation Christmas Child as the fund. All donations will be used to build and pack shoeboxes for the 2024 season!
