A Box of Joy is a Christmas shoebox, donated and packed with toys, clothing, school supplies, and other treasured items by U.S. parishes, schools, and groups. Each child who receives a Box of Joy also receives a rosary and booklet in their own language that tells The Story of Jesus.
A Box of Joy represents Christ’s love! It may be the only Christmas gift children in developing countries are blessed to receive thanks to Cross Catholic Outreach and YOU!
