What is Operation Christmas Child COVID Edition?

Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way to bless struggling children in the developing world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and other items. It’s an expression of God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world and, together with Parkwood and churches worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Due to this Covid season, Parkwood will be promoting the online purchase of shoeboxes December 6-20.  You can purchase a shoebox online that will be distributed in the name of Jesus Christ to children living in desperate situations. Just click on the PURCHASE ONLINE link below for all the details. You can also pick up an actual shoebox from the Mission Thrift Store (click on the link below for information) and drop off the filled shoebox there by November 21 OR at Campbell Baptist Church (1821 Wyandotte St. W.) by November 20. Please note that we will not be accepting any actual shoeboxes at Parkwood this year.
