FBA is on a mission to fulfill the Great Commission and with Operation Christmas Child (OCC), we can continue doing just that.
This year, you’ll have the opportunity to help provide gift-filled shoeboxes with toys, school supplies and necessity items to millions of children in more than 150 countries and territories.
For the first time ever, we’re providing the option to build a box online. Click on the following link to visit an OCC website where you will be able to select gifts for a child in need from the comfort of your own home.
