Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse.  The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. 

Every year, Samaritan’s Purse collects shoebox gifts filled with toys, school supplies, and hygiene items for children around the world.  

Penticton Alliance Church is proud to partner with OCC and is the Central Drop Off Location for the south Okanagan. 

The 2020 collection week is over but you can still pack a shoebox online!  Click here.

Thank you Pentiction community for participating in this project!  You are bringing joy to children who need to know they are loved.  May God bless you for your gifts!
