Operation Christmas Child

Each year Crestwood partners with Operation Christmas Child to share God’s Love with children through shoebox gifts.  What begins as an unearned gift from you becomes an open invitation to learn more about Jesus through The Greatest Journey study.  Every box is a Gospel Opportunity, and is changing lives around the world.

Ways to Get Involved


Contribute items that will be packed into shoebox gifts at the packing party, or a financial gift to cover the cost of items and the $9 per box shipping cost for the 800 packages we will prepare on November 16.  Your time in service to fold boxes or pack shoeboxes is also a gift!


Pack shoeboxes on your own, with your family or in groups.  You are also invited to our Crestwood Shoebox Packing party scheduled for November 16. Online registration is open now!


Volunteer to give out empty shoeboxes on Tuesday, November 5, or receive filled shoeboxes on Tuesday, November 12 at an area Chick-fil-A restaurant. Register for a lunch or dinner shift


Shoeboxes from around our area will converge on Crestwood’s gym during Collection Week, November 18-25. Sign up to help receive and process shoeboxes at the OCC Central Drop-Off location, praying for the children who will receive each box and for God’s work in their community.  Online registration available now!
