A recent Instagram post auction company GAA Classic Cars shows some businesses are looking out to make sure Christmas comes for all, despite this year being tainted by the pandemic.

The Greensboro, NC-based auction company recently donated Christmas showboxes to the organization. This is the help Samaritan's Purse in their efforts to collect and distribute more shoeboxes than ever before.


Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Its mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. It ships these simple gifts outside the U.S. to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.


The program was started in the United Kingdom in 1990 by Dave and Jill Cooke. Three years after this beginning, the Wales-based shoebox gift project merged in a partnership with Samaritan’s Purse, allowing them to share 20 years of expertise in relief and aid work with the project, and expand the reach of the shoebox gifts to more than 28,000 children that year. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has delivered gift-filled shoeboxes to more than 168 million children in more than 100 countries.
