The Mustard Seed Relief Mission organises Love in a Box and it is one of the best known parts of its operations and has been running for over a decade . They begin collecting the boxes at the end of October every year. Schools, churches, other organisations and individuals collect and pack items into shoeboxes for them to send to under-privileged children throughout Eastern Europe. They have sent on average 50,000 boxes each year and each one is individually received by a child.
Please consider making up a shoe box of gifts to give to disadvantaged children this Christmas. You can choose to make up a box for a boy or a girl of differing ages. Please follow the instructions on the leaflet (see the link below) closely and please include a donation if you are able to. It is important that the box and lid are wrapped separately so that they can be opened easily at customs.
Please send your completed gift box to school by 6th November. Please click here to download the leaflet.
If you are unable to make your own, you may be able to contribute single items to a class box. Please check with your daughter’s pastoral tutor.
