week 4: practice mercy
We are doing the shoebox collection differently this year. We have partnered with the Road of Hope foundation that does great work supporting documented and undocumented refugees in Amsterdam.
Let’s show God’s mercy to this group of refugees and bless them with a gift to celebrate Jesus’ birth.
Drop-off: 14-20 December. There will be a collection point in your vicinity.
