My church is taking part in this event. We will be packing shoe boxes the 23rd or 24th and sending them the 25th. If you would like to donate items to be placed in shoe boxes or fill a shoe box, I will gladly deliver them to our church. I, personally, will be creating a box for a child.

Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 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.

    When I left (not much left to pack), we had 172 boxes. Our goal was 200. I'm not sure if we made it.

      Sundays @ 10 & 11:30 AM

      Riverside is located at:

      10301 Eagle River Loop Road
      Eagle River, AK 99577

      We're about a half mile north of WalMart on the east side of the road.

      People sometimes miss us... we're set back from the road.
      Just look for the big red church with the glowing red cross on their steeple on the left and we'll be right across the street.

    Do they provide standard size shoe boxes (like in Canada)? Or do I need to find my own. Love this organization!

    November 6, 2013

    • Georgia B.

      Denise, we have to provide our own shoe box, plastic or cardboard.

      November 7, 2013

  • Georgia B.

    This has been a tradition for my daughter and her grandmother every year since she was 6 or 7. Now I am going to start it with my own granddaughter. I will have a couple boxes complete if you would like to pick them up at my store Cartridge World the week of the 18th.
