Welcome to the Operation Christmas Child Order Site


Please note the last day for online ordering is today, November 6. You can still place an order by phone, so feel free to call us at 1-800-303-1269 (between Monday and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. mountain time) or send us an email. Once we know your location, we’ll let you know how soon a courier can deliver the materials to your address.

Think outside the box! Other ideas to get materials faster:

  • Rather than ordering and waiting for shoeboxes to arrive, visit a local mall or shoe store and ask for their surplus empty shoeboxes. It's faster, easier and good for the environment!
  • Consider shopping at a local store and buying sturdy, clear, plastic storage containers for filling. This type of sturdy box can be used for years by the child and their family.
  • If you only need resources like boy/girl labels or coloring sheets, you can download them right now from our resources page. Print at home or at your local library/school.

It's never too late to pack shoeboxes online

Running out of time, but still want to participate? Don't forget that you can pack shoeboxes all year-round, on our PackaBox.ca website. Choose which items to include for your child, upload a photo, and even type an encouraging note to them before you place your order. It's quick and convenient. If you're in a hurry, we can even pack an online shoebox for you. Visit PackaBox.ca to learn more.

Operation Christmas Child Cardboard Shoeboxes

Empty Operation Christmas Child cardboard shoeboxes are an option for you – easy to build and easy to fill with gifts for children overseas. 

Important: These cardboard shoeboxes are available in increments of 25. If you have shoeboxes left over from last year, please take those into consideration before ordering more for this season. 

And don’t forget – any sturdy, standard sized shoebox can be used.

As you place your order, please prayerfully consider a donation towards the mailing and production costs of these cardboard shoeboxes (See step 4).
