During the Christmas season, St. Stephen's UNM participates in
Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child - a project of Samaritan's Purse - brings joy and hope to children around the world by delivering shoe boxes filled with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and a gospel booklet.
This ministry provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on mission project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas-Jesus Christ, God's greatest gift.
Every item lovingly added to an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox has the potential to impact a child with love of Christ.
For information on how to pack a box, and to read firsthand accounts of the eternal impact a gift delivered in Jesus' name has on these children, visit
