Introduce Your Huddle to Operation Christmas Child
As an athlete, you know the importance of a strong team. Whether it’s other players or a small circle of supporters, your teammates are vital to success. Millions of children around the world don’t have any kind of support. They live in difficult conditions with no hope for the future. You can join our team and help them, physically and spiritually, when you pack shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child.
Operation Christmas Child that has impacted the lives of over 103 million children, one heart at a time, in more than 150 countries since 1993. Through this fun and exciting project, your Fellowship of Christian Athletes Huddle can reach children around the world with the message of Christ’s love.
Be a part of our team of compassionate people by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. Each gift provides an opportunity for the message of Christ to impact a life. After receiving their shoebox, many children are given the opportunity to become faithful followers of Jesus Christ through our 12 lesson discipleship programs, The Greatest Journey.
From your huddle to our staff, we are a part of the same team, impacting the worldwide church one child at a time.
