Seafarer’s Christmas Boxes
Seafarer’s Christmas Boxes for the Houston International Seafarers’ Center: Presbyterian Women fill, wrap and deliver shoe boxes with toiletries and personal items to the Seafarers’ Center for ships that visit Houston in the weeks before Christmas. This is part of a city-wide faith community outreach project for (mostly) men who are, by occupation, almost always away from their homes in the holiday season.
Congregation-wide support is what makes it possible for us to meet a goal of 100 boxes. If you would like to make a contribution toward the purchase of items for the boxes, please make checks payable to the church with a notation that it is for “Seafarer’s boxes”.
Shopping will be underway through October, and packing day will be November 5th. Please call the church office (936-756-8884) or Susan Buckley (936-273-0098) for more information.
