175 Boxes of Joy from members of MACCW, friends, families and parishioners, blessed the lives of children in five countries around the world for their 2018 Christmas.

Signup Instructions:


  • If you, your family or your parish/school that wants to get involved, you (or your designated person) will serve as your leader of the Box of Joy Project and sign up here: 


  • You’ll sign up as a “Group” and indicate your Family, Parish or School Name in the space designed for the “Organization Name”.

  • You’ll also select “Group” in the drop down box labeled Organization Type.

  • You’ll select “Diocese of Milwaukee” in the Diocese dropdown box.

  • Every registered family/parish/school leader will receive a Project Leader Kit which contains 25 boxes, 2 corrugated boxes and necessary supplies. Families, Parishes or Schools who plan to do less than 25 boxes will save left over boxes/materials for next year or share them with others that they know who would like to use them this year.

  • Families/Parishes/Schools that wish to do more than 25 will need to indicate how many boxes they want in the “Your Goal” section of the form.

  • $9 must accompany every box. Checks will NOT be made out to MACCW but instead to Cross Catholic Outreach.

  • If you want to just donate instead of packing boxes, you can “Sponsor-A-Box” and Cross Catholic Outreach will do the shopping and packing: ($34 per box)
