This association aims to foster cooperation between Ladies’ Circle, Round Table, Agora Club and 41 Clubs. Recruitment is its main objective but the organization of common activities or projects is another important goal.
This association also anticipates the legal obligation to include both genders in its clubs.
Christmas in a box
Every year, we prepare and gather gift boxes for “Christmas in a box”. These boxes go to homeless and needy people in our society.
Each club certainly knows a local association who organizes a Christmas party. If each 4C1V member prepares a gift, we will have the privilege to make a smile appear on the face of many, many people at the end of the year.
Every box matters. Why? Because each person is allowed some measure of solidarity and generosity for Christmas.
If your club doesn’t know an association it could support, you can offer your gift boxes to the Samaritans, the Restos du Cœur or the CPAS in your region and drop them in the different storage locations mentioned on https://www.shoe-box.be/en/storage-locations between December 1 and 22. Just think about warning them of your arrival.
Xmas In a Box – Instructions
Each shoebox must contain a dozen items, food and/or drinks (non-alcoholic, non-perishable, easy to open [without a can opener], ready to be eaten [without needing heating]) and/or toys, sweets, etc., accompanied by a greeting card. They are then wrapped up as Christmas gifts, with the mention girl/boy and the age of the child for the toys or adult man/woman.
You can find any complementary information about this “Christmas in a box” action on the following website: https://www.shoe-box.be/en.
Our action “Christmas in a box” is organized jointly by Agora Club Belgium, Ladies Circle Belgium, Round Table Belgium and 41 Clubs Belgium.
Like last year, do not hesitate to take some pictures of your boxes and send them to the 4C1V workgroup or your national secretary, so they can be shared on Facebook!
This project is doable with little means, and involves very little money, since it’s the thought (and gesture) that counts.
