Christmas Boxes for Seafarers

Bless a Seafarer visiting the Port of Houston this Christmas!

Donate items to be packed at MDPC or pack your own gift boxes! Christmas boxes are personally carried to each ship by MDPC partners at the Houston International Seafarers Ministry to those who are far from home and not able to leave their vessels for months.

Help MDPC reach our goal of providing Christmas boxes for 10 ships - 220 boxes! Shop our Amazon Wish List to have items delivered and packed at MDPC, or use the list to shop local!
