Through the generosity of pupils and staff at Dover College, a total of 290 boxes were donated to this year’s Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal organised by the charity Samaritan’s Purse.
Members of our school community packed boxes full of items including toys, school supplies, toiletries, hats, gloves and scarves, which are now being processed. The boxes will then be shipped and distributed nearer to Christmas to children in countries around the world who may not have ever received such a gift before.
The shoeboxes which were all lovingly wrapped and packed will have a big impact on a child this Christmas time and it is a powerful symbol of hope to these children that someone, somewhere, cared enough to pack a gift meant just for them.
