How to Pack a Shoebox For
Operation Christmas Child


1. Get a Shoebox

Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately. Or you can pick up a box in the lobby at Red Hills Church.


2. Girl or Boy?

Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 
2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.


3. Fill with Gifts

Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. Please do not include liquids, toothpaste, candy, weapons, or live animals.
