Discover how you and other National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) participants can join us in fun faith-in-action events to bless children in developing countries with thousands of Christmas gifts and desperately-needed meals.
Cross Catholic Outreach’s annual Christmas gift ministry is organized by local Catholic schools, parishes and groups across the United States.
Bring any of the below items to NCYC as a donation and we will pack them into Boxes of Joy for boys and girls ages 10-14! While simple by U.S. standards, the below items may be difficult for poor families in developing countries to obtain.
Help send the Boxes of Joy packed at NCYC by donating for shipping

Nearly one billion people go to bed hungry each night. In the poorest countries, families sometimes go days without food. You can make a difference by supporting Cross Catholic Outreach’s ministry that organizes food packing events and ships millions of Vitafood meals to hungry children and families around the world.
The Interactive Village at NCYC Indy 2021 will offer the opportunity for conference attendees to participate in a Food Packing Event. Help support the youth by donating to ship the packed Vitafood meals to hungry children and families in developing countries.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2022, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
