Christmas Joy Boxes are gift boxes filled with candy, toys, school supplies which are purchased and packed in the U.S. then shipped to Haiti and presented to HFHC sponsored children. It is a wonderful opportunity for people of all ages to participate in a simple hands-on activity that has the power to bless a child in a foundational way.

Each year, churches, organizations, and individuals, lovingly pack shoe boxes with gifts to send to children living in desperate situations in Haiti. When a child opens a shoe box, they're opening more than a present picked out just for them, they are being reminded that there are others who care and are praying for them. Each shoebox is a beautiful outpouring of God's love to a child.

Give a gift that not only brings a smile to a child, but opens their heart to respond to the Gospel message and experience the real hope that changes lives. If you would like information about the program, please contact our Joy Box Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots.

See the Joy these Simple Gifts Bring!

Thank you to all participating churches, organizations, and individuals, who lovingly packed these gifts to send to children living in desperate situations in Haiti.
