The amazing journey of a shoebox gift begins with you and results in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication. We partner with Samaritan's Purse to not only pack shoebox gifts, but we also serve as a Drop-off location for local churches and individuals to drop their boxes which we then box and transport them to a collection site where they are loaded on a truck to be taken to the processing warehouse in Charlotte, NC.
Thank you to everyone who either packed a shoebox or volunteered in our Drop-Off Center this year. Here are the final numbers on our Operation Christmas Child outreach for 2021:
- Final tally of FBC shoeboxes - 474, breaking our goal of 400 and crushing our total of 361 from 2020.
- Final tally of shoeboxes processed in the Drop-Off Center - 2,740, up from 1350 in 2020.
- Final tally of shoeboxes for the Cape Fear Area - 20,075, dwarfing the total of 15,744 from 2019.
