Shoebox Appeal (‘Operation Christmas Child’)
The Riverside Parishes have been involved with this scheme for many years, sending shoeboxes full of gifts and love to places such as India, Kyrgyzstan, Bosnia, Croatia and Romania and more. In recent years an amazing 100 plus boxes were sent .The boxes brighten the life of a child who has very little. Enthusiasm for this appeal quickly spread beyond church members and many people in the community joined it.
