Every year we have supporters and volunteers working all over the country to help promote our shoe box appeal and make this event a success. We are always looking for people to help with collecting shoe boxes, coordinating the larger collections that we receive from churches and schools, working in the warehouse to ensure all items are packed safely, securely and much more.
