Operation Christmas Child

In year 2016, Sierra Lane Construction Ltd. donated over 175 shoebox gifts to Operation Christmas Child and we would like you to join us for this event in year 2017, bringing more children worldwide a meaningful Christmas this year.





Operation Christmas Child was started in 1990. In 1993, Operation Christmas Child grew and was adopted by Samaritan's Purse, a Christian organization run by Franklin Graham. To date, Operation Christmas Child has collected and distributed over 135 million shoebox gifts worldwide. In 2016, Canadians donated 664,525 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for hurting children around the world.

Each shoebox is filled by Canadians with hygiene items, school supplies, and toys, and is given to children regardless of gender, race, or religion. When culturally appropriate, copies of a book entitled The Greatest Gift, which has been translated into 130 different languages, are offered to children after the shoeboxes have already been distributed.

Every item lovingly added to an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift has the potential to impact a child.
