Boxes of Love Zambia
Once a year, the congregations of Christian Life Assembly and participating churches fill shoeboxes with various items (school supplies, toys, candy, soap, clothes etc.) for the children in the Villages of Hope located in Kitwe, Chongwe, Mongu and other regions across Zambia. Boxes are also distributed to street children, AIDS orphans, and families in need in the rural areas.
Like so many other aspects of life, Covid-19 has changed how we do Boxes of Love this year. Instead of filling a box and returning it to the church, would you partner with us by sponsoring a box for $40 this year?
$40 provides one child with a box!
A $40 donation will cover the cost of filling a box with everything they would usually get, shipping, and it also allows us to include special gifts for the teachers and families in rural areas that are in need.
HOW YOU CAN HELP!
Looking for ways for your family to be involved in the Boxes of Love this year? Below are a few ways you can help us and be a part of this annual project!
"Messages of Love" - With all the boxes being the same this year we have found a way to personalize each box and we need your help!! We will have labels at the front office that we would love for you and your families to pick up, fill out and return to the church. We will put a personalized label on each box. It can be a drawing, a simple "We love you" or a personalized note!
Child Care Plus Sponsorship Boxes - All boxes will be the same this year, however we still want you to have the opportunity to send a special note to your Sponsor Child. Please drop off a card, letter and/or photo with your Sponsor Child's Name and the Sponsor number and Nancy Bersaglio will make sure that the kids receive the letters!
Volunteers Needed - We are looking for families or Life Groups that would like to help fill the Boxes of Love. To follow our strict COVID-19 protocols we would like small groups to volunteer in their natural "bubbles". Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information if you are interested.
Thank you so much for all of you that have sponsored boxes already, we still need many more sponsorships, all donations can be designated to Boxes of Love - Zambia
Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
Why do we do it?
THE MISSION of Villages of Hope – Africa is to bring lasting hope to orphans and vulnerable children by providing them with love and care so they can embrace adulthood as contributing members of society.
THE VISION is that all children are loved and cared for.
Your participation in the Boxes of Love Zambia project helps bring love and hope to individual children from the age of infancy to high school. Each one has a special place in the heart of God.
Even though we can't pack boxes this year, you can still share personal encouragements to the kids at the Villages of Hope. Check out this video for a fun craft idea!
