Rotary Shoebox Scheme


By Stella Almond - Posted on 16 August 2013

During the past two years we have seen orders for our Rotary Shoeboxes fall by 20%. This has resulted in us not being able to supply all the areas where humanitarian aid, in the form of these shoebox gifts, is still requested and needed. While we understand that the current economic problems in this country could account for some of this shortfall, we believe that many Rotary clubs have simply forgotten that the scheme still needs shoebox gifts for Eastern European countries.

Please do consider supporting the scheme either returning as a past supporter, or looking at the scheme for the first time in the coming Rotary year.

The Shoebox scheme is a unique international project, in that it requires Rotarians to go out and involve their local community in getting shoeboxes filled rather than simply fund raising. If your club do not feel able to give the time to do this, then perhaps as a club you would consider making a donation to the scheme, which you can do online at our web site, to enable us to continue with the work.
