When you lead a group to pack Box of Joy gifts, you will bless children who may receive their first Christmas gift ever — because of you!

Bless Children in Developing Countries

Box of Joy is the perfect service project for your church, school or group!

A Box of Joy is a Christmas shoebox that is donated and packed with toys, clothing, supplies and other treasured items by U.S. parishes, schools and groups. Each child who receives a Box of Joy also receives a rosary and a booklet titled The Story of Jesus. Box of Joy provides hope to children in need, each gift represents Christ’s love, and may be the only Christmas gift they receive.

By leading a group to pack boxes you too can help impact the hearts of children and provide them with the love and hope of Christ!
