Be a Drop-Off Location

Each year hundreds of churches, schools, businesses, work-places and individuals welcome shoebox donors and act as Drop-off Locations for shoebox gifts during National Collection Week. They play a vital role in the journey of a shoebox and are part of blessings hundreds of thousands of children with shoebox gifts from the UK.

If you are interested in becoming a Drop-off Location this year and are able to receive shoebox gifts between 15-22 November, we would love to hear from you:
