Volunteer teams in the state of Ohio collected some 390,360 shoebox gifts in 2016.

 

This year, the Ohio teams expect to collect over 418,400 shoebox gifts.

 

Volunteers in the Great Lakes region (Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and West Virginia) donated enough shoebox gifts in 2016 to reach 917,050 children!

 

This year, the region is expecting to receive one million shoebox gifts.

 

In 2016, nearly 11.5 million shoebox gifts were collected worldwide and 9.1 million in the U.S.

 

The 2017 U.S. collection goal is 9.6 million shoebox gifts, part of 12 million from all of our sending countries worldwide.

 

Shoeboxes should be packed for either a boy or a girl in one of 3 age categories: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. A $9.00 donation is requested for each shoebox to cover shipping and other project costs. Checks should be made payable to Samaritan’s Purse with “OCC” written on the memo line. You can also donate $9 online and receive a tracking label to Follow Your Box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift.
