It‟s that time of year again!! “If you would like to give a little joy and love to a needy child this Christmas” you can do so by donating a shoebox. Fill the shoebox with gifts for a boy or girl aged between 2 and 14. Final date for receipt of boxes will be Friday 8th November. You can leave your box/s into the Parish Offices Sallins Road or Ballycane. More info: 01 294 0222, www.teamhope.ie.
Every year, with your help, the Christmas Shoebox Appeal sends thousands of gift-ﬁlled shoeboxes to children in Africa and Eastern Europe.
The children who receive your shoeboxes are aﬀected by poverty in diﬀerent ways. Many come from families with very little income, others live on the margins of society or in areas aﬀected by conﬂict. Shoeboxes are given based on need alone and bring joy and excitement to children living in often very diﬃcult situations. You can help us do that this year!
