11 Years of Spreading Joy: The One Point's Shoebox Packing Tradition Continues

3 January 2024

As we approached the end of 2023, we were delighted to celebrate our 11th year of bringing festive cheer to children in need across the globe. This is part of our ongoing commitment to the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing initiative. Read on to discover how we've managed to spread a little more joy this festive season and see the pics of our teams as they contributed to our packing day.

Every year, our dedicated team at The One Point fills shoeboxes with toys, personal hygiene items, stationery, and puzzles. We prepare 100 shoeboxes, thoughtfully curated for 50 girls and 50 boys. These boxes are then sent to one of the various drop-off points across the UK before being checked and packed at a packing centre, ready to be distributed to locations worldwide.

Over the past decade, we've had the pleasure of knowing our boxes have reached children in countries such as Nigeria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Belarus, and Albania. The joy of giving and the knowledge that our efforts are making a difference in these children's lives fuels our dedication to this tradition.

Our 11th year of packing shoeboxes has been no less rewarding. Here's to many more years of packing shoeboxes, and to the continued success of the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing initiative. After all, every child deserves to experience the joy of Christmas, no matter their circumstances.
