BRINGING BLESSINGS IN A SHOEBOX!
For many years now, some of the poorest children across the world have been blessed by receiving shoeboxes filled with gifts that bring pleasure as well as practical support. Importantly, they also get the Good News of Jesus Christ. However, the ministry of Operacion Los Ninos de la Navidad would not happen without the dedication of many volunteers and that’s where you can be part of this important ministry. Throughout this year, why not begin collecting together items that can fill a shoebox and bring pleasure. So, what do we need? Here are some ideas to get you started…
You could add a small item to an occasional shop or, if you are the creative type, maybe start making some things!
ITEMS TO FILL A SHOEBOX: these are divided for both boys and girls into 3 age groups: 2- 4 years, 5 – 9 years and 10 -14years.
Something to be clean with: Toothbrush, soap, flannel, sponge
Something to learn with: Writing paper, pens, pencils, rubbers, pencil sharpeners, short rulers & plastic geometry set
Something to wear: T shirts, briefs, socks, warm scarf, gloves, hats or head warmers
Something to play with: Small dolls, plastic toys such as Dinosaurs, puzzles, Rubix cubes, small balls, bags of marbles,
Something to love: Small cuddly toys

HOW TO PACK A SHOEBOX: For ease of storage and distribution, pre-printed standard size boxes will be available. In addition to the boxes themselves, we also need cover the cost of sending them on the way which is currently 7 euros a box so cash donations are also gratefully received.
