Shoebox Distribution team

Travelling out to Eastern Europe to deliver Christmas shoeboxes, these teams take boxes into schools, nurseries, hospitals, day-centres and even door-to-door through mud, snow, mountains, and farm tracks to the poorest communities living on the fringes of society.

No other team we run ever sees so much excitement or joy in the faces of children on arrival with the van full of Christmas presents and on discovery of the wondrous gifts been sent to them from someone unknown so far away.

“I felt really happy and privileged to have been part of doing something that brightened the children’s lives. It was an incredible experience.”

Shoebox Distribution teams are normally just over a week in duration in either early December or early January.
