Greyhound Update

For many years, Samaritan’s Purse has been blessed by our partnership with Greyhound Canada. The company has helped us transport tens of thousands of Operation Christmas Child gift-filled shoeboxes, packed by generous people like you, to a processing center for inspection. We are grateful for this partnership and how it has brought joy to children in need around the world. Effective October 31, 2018 Greyhound announced the end of its western Canada bus routes and will only be operating from Sudbury, Ontario eastward. Operation Christmas Child no longer has a partnership with Greyhound in Canada, so if this decision will affect you we may be able to suggest alternate ways to get your shoeboxes to us. Please contact us at 1-800-303-1269 or email us at for assistance.
