Christmas Child

Deadline for despatch is 8th NOVEMBER 2020

With your help, our group of churches continue to develop The Heart of Norfolk Churches involvement with Samaritan’s Purse and all that they do around the world. As in previous years, we aim to support as many children that are in desperate need by sending out your Christmas Boxes via “SAMARITAN'S PURSE.”

Taking into consideration the children’s age range i.e. 2-4 yrs, 5-9yrs, 10-14 yrs and suitable for a boy or girl, your special shoebox might contain toys, school supplies, hygiene items and lots of other items. 

These gestures bring sheer joy to children who feel they are remembered and loved...  click on either link below to view their story on YouTube.

More than 100 year-round volunteers get the word out about the Samaritan’s Purse project across the UK. In addition, thousands of short-term volunteers serve in around 1,000 drop-off locations open every year during National Collection Week, in November. Each shoebox collected then travels to one of 20 processing centres to be inspected and prepared for international shipment by thousands more volunteers. All of this is also supported by volunteers in our prayer network.

In 2019 alone, more than 10.5 million Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts were collected throughout Australia, Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

178 Million shoe box gifts since 1990
