 Christmas Shoe Box Appeal 2010

The Christmas Shoebox Appeal is an Irish project that promises to get your ‘Christmas Shoebox’ into the hands of a needy child In Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union or Africa. All they ask is for you to fill a shoebox with a range of simple Christmas gifts, and drop it off at your local drop off point before November 10th, and they will do the rest!

All you need to do is get an average size shoebox (or a plastic storage container would also be great), and wrap it with Christmas paper. Choose who you’d like to receive your gift – a boy or a girl, in one of three age groups: 2-4 years, 5-9 years or 10-14 years.

For further information or leaflets contact Fiona at 087-2169150. Boxes can be dropped off at Fifi’s Tots Preschool , Cnoc Neibhin before November 10th.
