This event, sponsored by Samaritan’s Purpose, asks for participants to fill a shoebox with toys and personal care items that will be sent to children in need.
Beginning November 12- 17 you can go to Homestead Furniture in Mt. Hope to pick up a shoebox and a map of the other local businesses participating in the drive. After filling your box, drop off your donation, along with $9 to cover the cost of shipping your shoe box, at Homestead furniture.
If every participant in this event packs 3 to 5 shoe boxes Holmes County can reach its goal of having 36,000 boxes filled and set a world record for being the largest shoebox collection in the United States! To learn more about how and what to fill your shoe box with visit this website.
