Current total: 159 boxes


In 2019 CHVN listeners set a record for the most shoeboxes gathered ahead of Christmas. Now, in the most challenging of years, we're asking you to set another record.

While we can't see each other at St. Vital Centre this year, we can still come together to bless kids all around the world.

You can easily (and safely) pack a box just by clicking the link above. If you have still packed a physical box this year, you can safely drop them off at locations in the city listed here.

Win a St. Vital Centre shopping spree & gift cards from Smitty's!

While we can't see you face-to-face this year, we still want to see you! Take a picture of you and your family either packing a physical box, or packing a box online, and then post it to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, with the hashtag #chvnocc. We'll pick random winners from the hashtag over the next few days.
