Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child (OCC) through the Samaritan’s Purse is a program that packs shoeboxes full of gifts for kids around the world.


Each year we partner with OCC to pack shoeboxes. Here’s how you can participate:


Bring Donations

Our donation drop-off box is located at the Kidsworld Guest Center. Here is a list of suggested donation items. They can be dropped off anytime before our packing party on Saturday, November 7.


Join our Packing Party!

We will pack boxes with the donated items on Saturday, November 7 from 10am-Noon at the First Covenant Church in Willmar. Come for a fun time of learning more about OCC and packing boxes together.
