Welcome to the 2016 Shoebox Challenge

Operation Christmas ChildWe are thankful you have visited us and are interested in the Shoebox Challenge. The shoeboxes you lovingly pack are reaching more than just the children who receive them. They affect their parents and even the local church community as a whole. Together, we are changing lives!

The Shoebox Challenge began at Herschend Family Entertainment in 2011 to help Samaritan’s Purse collect more shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child. Since the challenge started, over 2 million shoeboxes have been collected for needy children around the world, but this year we want to pack more! Help us change the lives of thousands of families, and earn complimentary tickets to participating theme parks and attractions.
