Christmas Shoebox Appeal – Extended

It is that time of year again. You and your family have the opportunity to fill a Christmas Shoe Box for a child in either Eastern Europe or Africa who will not get any other presents for Christmas.

It does take effort for us to fill the boxes but it is so worthwhile when you see their faces on the videos and hear back the happiness it gives them through their letters. The children do be delighted with the box and so do their parents, if they are with them.
