Operation Christmas Child

We’re delighted to announce that Affinity Devon is an official drop-off location for Operation Christmas Child! 
 
Every year thousands of people generously pack shoeboxes with a selection of fun toys, hygiene items and school supplies, bringing instant smiles to children around the world.
 
We would love for you to be involved! Your shoebox gifts will join millions of others on a journey around the world, and your generous contribution can make an eternal difference to the life of a child.
Here’s how it works:
1) FIND A SHOEBOX: You can collect one from our Clarks or Pavers store
2) FILL WITH GIFTS: Choose whether you would like to buy gifts for a buy or girl and within which age category (ages 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14), and fill your shoebox with a selection of fun toys, hygiene items and school supplies.
3) MAKE A DONATION: A suggested donation of £5 is essential to cover project costs, including shipping, to enable a local church or group overseas to lead a safe, well-organised children’s event where your shoebox will be given to a child in need.
4) PERSONALISE: Personalise your shoebox by including a hand written note and a photograph of yourself, your group or your family.
5) LABEL: Label your box clearly with ‘BOY’ or ‘GIRL’, along with your chosen age category. You can pick up a leaflet in Clarks or Pavers which has these labels on the back page.
6) DROP OFF AT COLLECTION POINT: Once your box is full and sealed, drop it off at the Centre Management Office, which is located behind our Tourist Information Centre in the Food Court.
 
Please ensure your gift box is dropped off to us between the 15th – 22nd November
 
Your shoebox gifts will join millions of others on a journey around the world. Your contribution can make an eternal difference to the life of a child.
