2014 Shoebox Project

Mon, Aug 4th 2014 at 12:00 am- Mon, Dec 1st 2014 - 12:00 am

Donations to the 2014 Shoebox Project are now being collected by members of Greenock Rotary Club.
Details of the scheme can be found at http://www.rotaryshoebox.org/

The Greenock club started to support the project in 1998.  Each year, the Shoebox team invite local organisations to participate in the project. The generosity of the Inverclyde community has resulted in thousands of boxes being donated each year.
In 2013, Rotarians sorted  2021 boxes, packed them on pallets which were then collected and driven to  a central point in England. The next stage was the journey abroad where  Rotary clubs distributed the boxes to children and families in need.
