Box of Joy

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!

Cross Catholic Outreach continues to be endorsed by the Vatican.
