Rotary Shoeboxes

Rotary Shoeboxes – children helping children

Each October we supply up to 10 local junior schools, Guide and Scout groups with specially made Rotary shoeboxes which the youngsters, with their parents’, teachers’ and leaders’ help, fill with toys and household goods to bring some Christmas cheer to orphans and elderly people in Eastern European countries.

As with most of our international giving, the money or goods are handled by Rotarians in the UK or who are based in the receiving countries. That way, we know our aid will reach the people who need it.
