Box of Joy

Box of Joy

Cross Catholic Outreach’s Box of Joy is a booming Christmas ministry inviting people all over the U.S. to package hope and happiness for thousands of children in dire poverty around the world. Parishes, schools, churches, groups and families may pack a gift box with presents like small toys, bar soap, pencils, a toothbrush, toothpaste, hard candy, crayons, coloring books or T-shirts. Once participants add a $9 check in each box to cover the shipment and to help support the charitable work where the child lives, they deliver the packed boxes to their local drop-off center.

The Boxes of Joy are distributed to the children by the priests, nuns or Catholic missionaries serving locally, along with The Story of Jesus.
