Send a Box of Joy!

Spread Christmas Giving to Children in Latin America

Wow!!! All 200 Boxes Are Committed to be Filled!

Thank you so much for your enthusiastic participation in our 3rd 'Box of Joy' project.

In just 4 days, we have commitments to fill 200 boxes!

If you still want to participate in the project, but don't have an 'Official Box of Joy', don't despair.

Just fill a plastic shoebox (97ยข at Walmart) instead and click here to view the list of suggested items to pack in your 'Box of Joy'.

Filled boxes are due back at Aquin on November 5 at 4:00pm. God bless you for considering this giving project!

Get in the Christmas Gifting Spirit Early!

The Box of Joy program is a Christmas gift outreach organized by local Catholic schools, parishes and groups nationwide. By packing a Box of Joy with toys and other gifts, you can bless a child suffering from extreme poverty by sharing the joy of Christmas and planting seeds of hope through the Gospel.

In our first year, Aquin Junior High filled 50 boxes, last year we filled 142 boxes (our goal was 125). This year our goal is 200--WE CAN DO IT! Once filled, Aquin will send these boxes to impoverished children in Latin America.
