YOU ARE INVITED TO BRING YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND PACK A SHOEBOX OF JOY FOR A CHILD IN NEED THIS CHRISTMAS!
Where: Donkey Wheel House, 673 Bourke Street, Melbourne
When: Saturday 19 September, 10am – 4pm
The world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child shares God’s love in a tangible way by giving gift-filled shoeboxes to impoverished kids around the world.
This year, Samaritan’s Purse invites you to be part of the very first community packing party open to the public in Melbourne.
Come along and pack a shoebox for a child in need overseas, while also supporting a variety of local social enterprises and community groups. An indoor market set up at the event will feature vendors from these local groups, selling items suitable for 2 – 14 year olds in a price range from $1 – $30 to include in Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
What do I pack in my shoebox?
- Something to love
- Something to play with
- Something to wear
- Something for personal hygiene
- Something for school
- Something special
Empty shoeboxes will be available on the day and gift-filled shoeboxes will be collected, processed and distributed overseas by Samaritan’s Purse. We ask you to bring $9.50 to cover the cost of the pre-printed shoebox and other project costs. You can pack as many boxes as you like and even buy some stocking fillers for your own Christmas gifts this year! Bring the whole family to this event and enjoy child-friendly entertainment and a festive atmosphere.
