Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2020
Each year, our school goes above and beyond for the Christmas Shoebox Appeal for Team Hope. Our school has one of the highest rates of giving shoeboxes, often close to 200 boxes are donated from the Faha school community, which has been quoted by the directors as one of the best in the county regardless of school size. This year again, our school is hoping to support Team Hope's Christmas Shoebox Appeal.
The Christmas Shoebox Appeal is an annual campaign where thousands of individuals in Ireland donate sheboxes filled with gifts to be given to children affected by poverty in Africa or Eastern Europe. It is an opportunity to give joy, excitement and most of all hope to children who live in circumstances where these can sometimes be in short supply.
This year, due to the effects of Covid-19 restrictions, the Christmas Shoebox Appeal has gone online. Every €20 donated will allow Team Hope's partners in Africa and Eastern Europe to purchase items for shoeboxes locally, which will then be packaged and delivered directly into the hands of children.
To make a virtual box of your own with your child you can visit www.TeamHope.ie at home and choose the items you would like to add.
During these difficult times, we appreciate your support for this worthwhile cause.
