Our Polk Country Operation Christmas Child team of volunteers never rests! We are always looking for ways to increase the number of shoeboxes that our county donates each year. In 2015, we were able, through our local churches and community outreach programs, to offer over 13,000 shoeboxes packed full of toys, school supplies, hygiene items, clothing, etc. to be distributed across the globe to boy and girls living in the most dire of circumstances.

If you're looking to get involved in this "world-changing" effort, the opportunities abound and the amount of time or money you invest it totally up to you. Even the smallest contribution (something to go into a shoebox) is helpful!

Please visit and let us know how you'd like to get involved. Our group page lists local fundraising activites and fun events, which may include local restaurants that will donate part of your tab on specific dates for mentioning Opreation Christmas Child to your server.

Thank you and God bless.
