|Blythswood Care Shoe Box Appeal 2013|
In St Andrew's we regularly join the Blythswood Care Shoe Box Appeal and will be doing so again in 2013.
This is the 20th anniversary of Blythswood running the appeal and over 1.6 Million boxes have been donated and distributed through the years.
You can help us this year by filling a box yourself. It’s very easy to put some basic items together; you could even do this with your work colleagues.
It’s not difficult to choose gifts for someone who has so little. Things we take for granted can often be luxuries for people living in desperate poverty.
Boxes will go to Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Pakistan, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine this year.
By filling a shoebox you can bring some joy and laughter to someone this Christmas.
Please bring your filled boxes to the church on or before Sunday, 20 October.
Please note that there are guidelines for what to include in the boxes. Click here to open a copy of the leaflet.
