We are so glad that you are joining us for another great season of giving. With the refugee crisis present in all of our minds, we have chosen the themes of joy and hospitality this season. We would like to inspire all of our kind volunteers to imagine how they would welcome a child into their own home with a beautiful box or backpack filled with love, toys, and practical gifts that bring joy into a child’s heart. Love in a Box is all about our children giving to other children.
Please find below all of the information you need regarding the 2016 drive. We created a Frequently Asked Questions sheet that we hope will cover most of your information needs. The main packing instruction sheet has not changed, but we have added a special instruction sheet for baby boxes this year (0-1yr-olds), as we received so many requests for these last year. Think about reaching out to neighbors, colleagues and friends to have a Love in the Box party in November!
The deadline for receiving the boxes at the American Cathedral is Friday 2 December. Please bring in the boxes on Sundays in November. If you can’t bring them in on a Sunday please kindly leave them at the ACP reception. Make sure to pick up one copy at a LOVE IN A BOX table / welcome table during the coffee hour after the services.
For more information on how you can get involved with Love in a Box please contact the Mission Outreach Committee.
