Shoebox Appeal

‘The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.’

Due to the restrictions this year, the Mini Vinnies were unable to shop for items with which to pack a shoebox – but they did not let that stop them. They worked in groups to pack 4 online shoeboxes. They were able to choose the age and gender of the recipients as well as the items to go inside. They also wrote a message to the children who will receive the parcel.

We hope that this small act of kindness can help bring some joy to a child’s life.
