The Church of Christ in Trumbull has partnered for the last several years with Healing Hands International in Nashville, TN to provide shoe sized boxes of age and gender appropriate gifts for Christmas to the underprivileged children of Honduras. Most of the children who receive the gifts have never received any gifts in their whole lives. For the last several years the Trumbull church has collected the boxes with a $7.00 donation to help with the shipping and handling fees of each box to Nashville and then through customs in Honduras. The Churches of Christ in Honduras make sure the gift boxes get to the neediest children. Honduras is a very poor country and the gifts are highly welcomed.
This year Healing Hands is providing free boxes specially designed for those who would like to include coloring and other appropriate books in addition to the other items for the Spanish speaking children in Honduras. Anyone who desires to participate in this humanitarian project may, with prior notice, arrange to pick up one or more boxes from the Trumbull Church of Christ, 2 Drew Circle, Trumbull, CT 06611 by calling in advanced 203 261-5201. Please remember to bring the shipping fee of $7.00 for each box picked up. You will then be provided with a brochure that includes full instructions on what items are acceptable and those that are not. When the box(s) are filled they can be returned to the Trumbull church for shipping to Nashville. The ending date to return boxes is Sunday, September, 21st. That will enable us to get the boxes to Healing Hands by Oct 1st. This will allow Healing Hands to make sure the boxes get to the children by Christmas. Each box will be inspected and inappropriate items will be removed and discarded.
