Nearly twenty years ago Brian & Jane Porter made contact with a local church in Romania. When Brian was told about the plight of local children at Christmas time, he knew Sunnyside needed to do something. Eventually, we became involved with a Task Force Romania shoebox gift appeal to bring hope and joy to Romanian children.
It’s so simple! Grab a shoebox and wrap it in Christmas paper, decide whether to send to a boy or a girl and then fill it with all sorts of gifts. You’ll bring a smile to the face of a child this Christmas.
Here are a few ideas of things to send:
Knitted hat, Gloves, Scarves, Shampoo, Soap, Comb, Simple calculator, Balloons, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Crayons, Felt Pens, Pencils, Colouring book, Doll, Teddy Bear, Small Toys, Wrapped sweets, Small Travel Games.
Pick up a flier in the church lobby or dowload the flier by clicking the link RomanianShoeboxes flier 2018 for more information. Please note, shoeboxes must be returned to Sunnyside Church by 11th November.
