Operation Christmas Child 

Shoebox Challenge

CSU has accepted the challenge to pack 2,000 Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes to send to children all over the world and we need your help! The amazing journey of a Shoebox Gift begins with you and results in children not only experiencing the joy of opening a special gift, but also being blessed by the gospel, discipleship and multiplication.

In order to meet and exceed this goal, we are asking all of our CSU Family to shop the below links and purchase bulk items to help fill these 2,000 OCC Shoeboxes that will be packed on Thursday, November 15, 2018 at the Annual Charleston Southern University OCC Packing Party.

Below you will find information on what to buy, what not to buy and where to ship shoebox items. The department that purchases the most items will win 10 tickets to see "A Christmas Carol" at The Dock Street Theater on Friday, November 30 ($350 value). (Be sure to register on the form below after you buy your items!) What a perfect way to ring in the Christmas Season!
