In 2022, Houston Seafarers received and distributed 9,173 gifts on-board 403 ships which represented Seafarers from more than 61 different countries! These gifts were donated to the Seafarers by over 179 churches, organizations and individuals! St. Dunstan's is proud to support this wonderful program.

St. Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors, so during Breakfast with St. Nicholas at St. Dunstan's, we will pack shoeboxes with your donations as Christmas gifts for seafarers. We ask that everyone who attends the event bring a donation to help make this service project possible! Please review the list below for suggested/ most needed items.
