The Amazing Journey of a Simple Shoebox Gift




Begins with You and Results in Evangelism, Discipleship, and Multiplication


From children to seniors, people pack shoe box gifts each year to bless children in need around the world. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving. Year-round volunteers support these efforts across the country.


Churches and groups of all sizes collect boxes from their communities. Some churches also serve as drop-off locations for shoe boxes the third week of November every year.


Thousands of volunteers serve annually, inspecting and preparing shoe boxes for international shipping. Every hour work stops for a few minutes to pray for the children who will receive the boxes.
