Following the success of last years appeal, we are welcoming YOU to donate a wrapped shoebox filled with goodies for the underprivileged, sick and homeless
Please help us make a deprived child’s Christmas special with The Jermain Defoe Foundation’s Shoe Box Appeal.
We are asking you to be a part of changing a child’s life this Christmas – a small gift box can have a big effect!
We will be in St Lucia spreading happiness and gifting as many boys and girls with fun-filled shoe boxes as we can. For the majority of the children, it will be the first Christmas gift they have ever received.
We will also be taking donations towards the shipment of the boxes on our justgiving page.
It’s easy to take part – just simply wrap up an empty shoe box (lid and bottom separately), then fill it with as many children’s items as you can such as toys, teddy bears, clothing, colouring books etc.
Please ensure you label the box with if it’s for a Girl, Boy or unisex with the suitable age group for the box.
We will be accepting boxes from now until 22nd November 2017 – please fix an elastic band around the box, download & print the form and send it to: The Jermain Defoe Foundation, 2-4 Eastern Road, Romford, RM1 3PJ.
