Pack a shoebox

Southport Pres is partnering with Operation Christmas Child to collect shoebox gifts to be distributed to children all around the world.  The shoebox gifts are a tangible expression of God's love sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, God's greatest gift.  Our shoebox initiative begins with a donation drive to collect items for our annual shoebox packing party.  Hygiene items, school supplies, toys, clothing and more are needed.  We will start collecting items in October.


Don't have time to shop for items in a shoebox? That's ok you can assist by buying items off our Amazon wishlist. We will receive them and pack the box for you.

We are also accepting funds to help with shipping or shopping. Each box costs $10 to ship.
