Help share the Gospel through a shoebox gift for a child in need with Operation Christmas Child. This is Operation Christmas Child's 25th year, and Gateway has been packing boxes with OCC for well over 10 years! Last year, we filled over 300 boxes and we’ve set a goal of 400 boxes this year!


Stop by our booth in the Crossection to pick up boxes.


Return filled boxes to Gateway by Sunday, November 18 (deadline extended!).


Can’t pack a box this year? Drop off a donation or donate items towards the Free Store. Follow our Facebook page (Shoeboxes at GCCSTL) for inspirational stories and tips and tricks for filling shoeboxes!


If you’d like to volunteer or have questions, please contact Jennifer Follmer at or through the Facebook page.
