Operation Christmas Child


Sharing the love of Jesus, through the power of a simple gift, with children around the world.


Every year, National Collection Week takes place the third week in November when nearly 5,000 drop‑off locations are open across the country. For many years, Warren Baptist Church has served as a Regional Collection Center for Operation Christmas Child. Volunteers help enable donations and process collections.

Core Values

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.
