Hobby Lobby has plenty of great gifts to help you fill up all your shoeboxes! Just check out the Operation Christmas Child signs throughout the store. If you need more ideas, see our quality gift suggestions organized by age and gender. Hobby Lobby is also a convenient place to pick up our preprinted Operation Christmas Child plastic shoeboxes. These colorful, sturdy boxes are a gift in themselves for children to store cherished items. When you pack a box, make sure it's full—including a special “wow” item—and covered in prayer.
Jane Marie, a teen from Tennessee (pictured above), rallied her community over the past two years to pack over 1,000 shoebox gifts for children in need around the world! Many of the items she put in her boxes were purchased at Hobby Lobby. Jane Marie said she finds tremendous joy in how much even small items can help spread the Gospel and change a child’s life for eternity. "No gift is too small for God to use," she said. "Operation Christmas Child opens up a way for a child to learn about the Good News of Jesus Christ."
Prayerfully consider partnering with us by shopping at Hobby Lobby for shoebox gifts to bless children in need around the world with Good News and great joy! Also, you can shop at Mardel Christian and Education stores, which are a part of the Hobby Lobby family, to purchase plastic shoeboxes and great gift items.
