Connecting Churches, Changing the World


2019 National Collection Week is November 18-25


The Jacksonville/Onslow Collection Center is located at the
E. J. Hines Baptist Center (2734 Commerce Road).



  • $9.00 per box is requested to help with shipping expenses and evangelistic outreach.
  • Please put the donation in the envelope attached to the brochure.  Fill out, tear off, and seal.
  • Checks are recommended and should be made payable to Samaritan's Purse.
  • If you bring several boxes - you may make out one check for all of them.
  • Do not give checks to the workers.  THE CHECKS GO INTO A SHOEBOX.
  • Online payments will allow the shoeboxes to be tracked so the donor can be notified of where the box(es) were sent. 
  • Do not include candy, gum, or toothpaste. For a list of suggested items, please see the website 
  • Please use a standard size shoebox instead of the larger boot size.  Some prefer to use plastic boxes, of the same size, which can later be reused by the child.  If you wrap a box, please wrap the lid separately so the boxes can be opened in Charlotte.
  • The OCC pre-printed boxes can be ordered online.  The cost is $25.00 for a case of 50 boxes.
    Please contact us about volunteering (men, women, youth, and older children).  This ministry is open to all denominations, school groups, organizations, individuals, etc. - anyone who has compassion for CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD.  ABOVE ALL, PRAY FOR THE COMPLETE PROJECT - Beginning Now!
    Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes present a wonderful opportunity to share the life changing message of God's love with hurting children, their families, and friends.  Included in each shoe box is a Gospel Storybook for the child in his/her own language, followed by a discipleship program for those who wish to learn more. Through the power of a simple gift, hearts are touched, lives are changed, and even whole communities are transformed.  OCC would not be possible without the help of everyone who prays, packs shoe boxes, volunteers, and gives financially.  The Coordinator of the Jacksonville Collection Center is Becky Hoffman.
