Shoebox Appeal

The Drop Inn Shoebox Appeal works each year to provide a little bit of joy and happiness to children of all ages in poverty stricken areas of Latvia, Ukraine and Belarus. This year we’re working with Team Hope, which means we can send shoeboxes into even more countries.

5 steps

  1. Grab a shoebox
  2. Print a label
  3. Fill the box
  4. Close the box (with an elastic band)
  5. Drop it off
