Imagine not having a Christmas.

It's a sad reality for people all over the world, including hundreds of gypsies who live in poverty in the outskirts of Bulgaria's cities. But for the past three years, Asbury has supported Mission Bulgaria, an organization founded by a United Methodist Pastor in the North Alabama Conference, that provides children with shoeboxes filled with toys and everyday essentials. Together, with your help, we can bring a little Christmas to kids in need.



Our Christmas Shoebox Project is Asbury's Mission of the Month until September 30. Due to the pandemic, the mission trips that gather pictures and information of kids were canceled, so we will not have a specific child for you to sponsor. If you cannot shop for a child, you can make an online gift here or write us check for $25 and we will assemble a box for you.

Build Your Box.
