Christmas will soon be upon us and this means that Operation Christmas Child – the Shoebox Campaign – will start soon. The warehouse at the Ice House is preparing itself for the rush and will be open from November 2nd. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 10 am to 4 pm, Wednesday from 10 am to 9 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm.
Last year we collected, checked and sent out a staggering 21,458 boxes from Grimsby, which put a smile on 21,458 children’s faces, children who would normally not receive a gift for Christmas. We would dearly like to put a smile on more children’s faces this year, and we can do this with your help, by filling a shoebox with small toys, pens, pencils, crayons etc, hygiene items, and hat, gloves, scarves etc. Volunteers will also be welcome at the warehouse to check and pack boxes into cartons ready for shipping out.
