Operation Christmas Child Van Stop

Location: 3925 Airport Expressway, Fort Wayne, IN
Cost: FREE

As a parent, maybe you are finding it hard to teach your kids about giving this holiday season. Well, if that's the case, you and your family can bless underprivileged children around the world with just a shoebox. Yes, a simple shoebox can not only show these children God's love in a tangible way, but it can also spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse that sends Christmas gifts to in need communities around the world. These gifts are given to the ministry by people just like you who fill their shoeboxes with small toys and other Christmas goodies. The boxes are then distributed to each village's local church where Operation Christmas Child partners with the church leaders to creatively present the Gospel, and pass out the gifts to all children present. The giving does not stop there. Afterward the children are encouraged to further their relationship with Christ through ministry done at their local church.

We are planning a van stop each Sunday in November (Nov. 3, 10, 17, 24) to make it convenient for you to pick up a shoebox. Our van will be parked outside of Darlington Holiday Warehouse off Airport Expressway on from 12pm to 3pm so you can stop by and pick up a box to fill!
