CHRISTMAS AT SEA

ADOPT A SHIP

2017 Christmas At Sea boxes are here and available for pick up by anyone wishing to participate this year.   Anyone wanting 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.  Email chapssmail@gmail.com with your phone number and how many boxes you think you can fill and we will call you to arrange a mutually convenient meeting place for you to get the empty boxes.  To adopt a ship 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.  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.
