Together, we are changing lives

Thank you for your interest in the 2017 Shoebox Challenge. The shoeboxes you lovingly pack are reaching more than just the children who receive them; they impact family, friends, and even the local church community as a whole.

The Shoebox Challenge began at Herschend Family Entertainment in 2011 to partner with Samaritan’s Purse in an effort to collect more shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child each year. Since then, nearly 3 million shoeboxes have been collected through the Challenge for children in need around the world. Help us change the lives of thousands of families while you earn complimentary tickets to participating theme parks and attractions.
