Operation Christmas Child
Since 2013, Southern States Insurance has been packing gift-filled shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.
The Impact of OCC
Each year, thousands of churches, groups and individual donors prepare and collect shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, personal hygiene items, and other small gifts. These gifts are distributed across the world to children in need, kids who may have never received such a gift in their lifetime. And every shoebox is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship—transforming the lives of children and their families through out these nations.
150 Countries and Territories
Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has collected and delivered more than 124 million gift-filled shoeboxes to children in more than 150 countries and territories. Some of the places our shoeboxes have gone to include: India, Madagascar, Burkina Faso, Cameroon and Georgia (formerly of the Soviet Union).
