SHOEBOX FAMILY & ELDERLY LEAFLET  – Due to the current situation we are putting up this years Shoebox Leaflet and Poster for you to take ideas from and if you need to download.  NB Please register with us and we will send your leaflets out to you if you are going to do more than 5 shoeboxes. This is very important and is so we can plan our  logistics properly,  Please do not use last years leaflet as it has changed. We would rather send you the original leaflets if at all possible.

SHOEBOX YEAR ROUND CALENDAR  – For all year round suggestions on what to put in your shoebox please download our Link to Hope Family & Elderly Shoebox Calendar.  This will also hope you plan your purchases and spread the cost of the appeal.     








We welcome schools and churches getting involved in the Family & Elderly Shoebox Appeal.  As we are a very small team we can’t go all over the country doing presentations as much as we would like too.  Therefore we have put together a series of presentations that we hope will engage your students and congregations in the Shoebox Appeal and help them understand what their shoeboxes is helping to achieve, which is to show love to some of the poorest people in Eastern Europe.

We are anxious to make sure that making a shoebox is a joy and not a (financial) burden.  We would highly recommend getting together a group of people/friends/colleagues/family members and having a Bring & Box Party.  Each person brings in an item for the shoebox and one person brings in the ¬£3 to cover the transport etc.  Then you can buy different items in the run up to the appeal and then the financial expenditure is not so great.  Here are a few resources that will help you organise your Bring & Box party.
