Operation Christmas Child

A small shoebox can have a big impact. What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ Name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child.

Venture is collecting shoeboxes now through November 22nd.

Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations worldwide through gift-filled shoeboxes and the Good News of God’s love.

How to Help

Pack a Gift

  1. Pick up labels and box info at the Event Table at the Hub.
  2. Purchase a plastic “shoebox” or repurpose one you have at home.
  3. Follow the directions on the label when filling your box.
  4. Bring your box back to Venture any Sunday through Nov 22.

The Gospel is included with each box. You’re not just giving gifts, but sharing Jesus’ good news with a child around the world. Make sure to pray for the child who will be receiving your box.


Charlotte hosts the largest OCC processing center in the country where the gifts are prepared for overseas shipments. Volunteers are used in almost every area of this process. Make a difference in the lives of children by volunteering with OCC.

Venture’s team is scheduled to help December 8th from 10 am to 4 pm and December 14th from 5 pm to 10 pm.
