Each class is trying to fill a shoebox with items for a child, for a teenager or for a household.
The gift of a shoebox that contains toys, toiletries, educational items or household goods is a drop of happiness to the people of Eastern Europe who live in a world of poverty. For many, it will be the first present that they have ever received and it lets them know that somebody, somewhere cares. If you would like to take part, please call at the school office where we have boxes available to be filled by families.
Children’s box Toys such as ‘Matchbox’ type toy cars, small bouncy balls, jigsaws, fluffy toys, dolls, colouring books, felt tip pens, Lego, yoyo’s, bubble blow, etc. Please indicate if the box is for a boy or girl and the age group.
Teenager’s box Suggested items include make-up, toiletries, sportswear, scarf, gloves, hat, writing materials, deodorants, comb, mirror, football memorabilia, etc
Household box Goods such as hand soap, toothpaste and brushes, envelopes, letter paper, biro pens, etc. Toys are especially appreciated, since these boxes can be used for birthday gifts. This box is also good for older folk, especially if a warm scarf or a pair of gloves is included.
