Why We Help Operation Christmas Child

  • To demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world.

  • To partner with local churches around the world to share the news of Jesus Christ.

  • To bring joy to children in impoverished countries at Christmas time.

  • To model generosity and service to Highland UMC children, who can easily participate in packing shoeboxes.
