For the second year in a row, we teamed up with Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami to distribute the items — blessing poor children without incurring any additional shipping expense.

Cross Catholic Outreach Makes Donation to Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Miami

Tens of thousands of children living in poverty in Central America and the Caribbean are being blessed each year with Cross Catholic Outreach’s Box of Joy® ministry. In 2019, 908 church and school groups signed up to participate. Tens of thousands of Catholics from around the United States packed our Boxes of Joy, which were then shipped to our Miami warehouse to be prepared for overseas shipment. As part of our screening process, items such as food and certain types of toys are not allowed to be shipped, and therefore, to follow our guiding principle of always honoring the intent of our donors, we made sure these items went to the needy.
