Romania Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2017

Keynsham Elim's 2017 Christmas Shoebox appeal is here, and this is your opportunity to help give the gift of hope to underprivileged children in Romania. Last year was our most successful appeal, making a difference to over 750 children. This year, with your help, we aim to reach even more children living in poverty in north-west Romania.

We work alongside our partners, CASA Grace, who are an on-the-ground charity operating all year round in the Oradea area, providing advice and support to disadvantaged local families.

Each year at the start of December, our team travels to Romania to help deliver shoeboxes to disadvantaged children. Each shoebox is festively decorated and lovingly filled with Christmas presents. For many of the families supported by CASA, the shoebox you create will be the only present they receive this Christmas. With your help, we can bring joy and a smile by sharing your shoebox this Christmas season.

Want to get involved? Visit our 2017 Christmas Shoebox Appeal page to find out details of how you can produce your own shoebox, and what kind of items you can put inside. You'll find lots of useful resources including flyers and posters you can download and print for your school, club or place of work. You can also help us spread the word by sharing this page on Facebook and with your friends.
