CHRISTMAS AT SEA

2017 Christmas At Sea Another New Record

2,783 Boxes

   During the month of December we put 1 box per crewmen on each of the vessels calling our terminals.  An average vessel has a crew of about 24.    Last year we put 2,300 boxes on ships during December.  Let's beat that this year.

The Charleston Port and Seafarers' Society is a Christian charitable organization that exists for the purpose of welcoming and serving the needs of those men and women who make their livelihood in the port or at sea without regards to nationalithy, race, ethnicity, politics or religion.

 

Each year, more than 65,000 seafarers arrive on hundreds of vessels to the Charleston Port. Most crews consist of persons from diverse third-world countries and from many cultures. Three to four nationalities are common for one vessel, with a crew of around 25 seafarers. Many are lonely, away from home and their families for up to a year at a time. The need and opportunity for ministry to these brothers and sisters is tremendous.
