“At Samaritan’s Purse we don’t run from disasters, we run to them. We go to help people in Jesus’ Name.”
— Franklin Graham, President of Samaritans Purse

Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Canadians to bless struggling children in the developing world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and other items.

As a church, we have donated over 500 shoeboxes over the past 2 years! Let’s continue to grow that total as we reach the world with the message of Jesus!

Not only will we be collecting full shoeboxes from you, but in CLC KIDS, they will be creating shoeboxes as part of their program!


  • Where do I get a shoebox to fill up?

    • We will start giving out shoeboxes on Sunday, Nov. 3rd at Calgary Life Church.

  • When does it need to be returned?

    • In order to get the shoeboxes back to Samaritans Purse in time, we need to have your filled up shoebox returned to us by Sunday, Nov. 24th at the latest!

  • Is there a list that shows me what items are recommended to fill the shoebox with?

    • Please click the button below labeled: “What Goes In My Shoebox?”

  • Can I donate items for other to fill shoeboxes with?

    • Yes, CLC KIDS will be filling up shoeboxes on Sunday, Nov. 3rd so we ask that if you want to donate items only that you bring them that day or before hand at the KIDS HALLOWEEN PARTY.
