Shoeboxes for needy children
TEAM Hope has reminded supporters they have until just November 11 next to fill a shoebox with gifts to be sent to needy children in Africa and Eastern Europe. Last year, 7,526 shoeboxes full of gifts were sent from Co. Wexford as part of the Team Hope campaign.
All the information about how to pack the box, suggestions as to suitable items, a sticker to mark the box (boy or girl, age) and an envelope for the €3 (contribution towards transport etc) is in a leaflet which is available from local co-ordinators or via the website www.teamhope.ie.
The drop-off points and co-ordinators for the Wexford area are Seán Keane, Henrietta Street, Wexford, 053 9123622, and Fast Fit, New Road, Redmond Road, Wexford Town, 053 9121527.
