To date we have given out over 2,700 empty boxes to local churchs, organizations and individuals and many have been returned full. Over 1,000 boxes have been placed on board vessels as of Dec 9, 2016 with more still be be delivered. If anyone still would like to participate, we will provide the boxes which are 9 x 9 x 4 each and a flier advising the items to put in the boxes. Fill 25 boxes with each of the items in the list, wrap them and return them to ChaPSS. . During the month of December we will put 1 box per crewmen on each of the vessels calling our terminals. An average vessel has a crew of about 25. If you can not fill 25 we will be grateful for whatever you can do.

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.
