Box of Joy logo

Box of Joy provides schools, parishes, organizations, and families with an inspiring opportunity to send gifts to Haiti, Guatemala and other developing countries.

A Box of Joy is a Christmas shoe box, donated and packed with toys, clothing, school supplies, and hygiene items by participants from U.S. parishes, schools and groups. Each gift includes a rosary and The Story of Jesus and may be the only Christmas gift children in developing countries are blessed to receive.
