Sandi Pino, Senior Director at Cross Catholic Outreach was live on The Katie McGrady Show to talk about the Box of Joy ministry and its efforts to bring Christmas joy to poor children in developing countries. Catholic parishes, schools and groups nationwide prepare Boxes of Joy by packing the boxes with small gifts. Participants insert $9 in each box to cover shipment from the local drop-off.
Pino explained that the 2021 Box of Joy outreach kicks off in September, and groups deliver gifts to their local drop-off centers during Box of Joy Week, Nov. 6-14. Any group that misses Box of Joy Week can ship its gifts to the National Screening Center in Miami.
