See a special message about how to pack a shoebox below. 

You can also build a shoebox online – go to www.samaritanspurse.org/occ 
You can choose from a variety of gifts and even upload your photo and a letter. 

 

If you prefer the convenience of online shopping, browse www.samaritanspurse.org/buildonline to select gifts matched to a child’s specific age and gender, then finish packing the virtual shoebox by adding a photo and personal note of encouragement. 

 

Shoeboxes should be packed for either a boy or a girl in one of 3 age categories: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. A $9.00 donation is requested for each shoebox to cover shipping and other project costs. Checks should be made payable to Samaritan’s Purse with “OCC” written on the memo line. You can also donate $9 online and receive a tracking label to Follow Your Box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift.
