Enjoy your new shoes, but share the box--

"Do you have any panties for me?  I don't have any panties--"

Start with an empty shoebox & a heart filled with love, & you have the power to change lives right here in Pamlico County.

Don't live in eastern NC?  No problem, as one of our major goals is to show you how to turn empty shoeboxes into love & hope in your own backyard, wherever you are in the world.

We decorate our discarded shoeboxes, recycling them into keepsakes, & fill them with basic toiletries & personal items for those, primarily children, teens & women, whose lives have been disrupted.  School supplies & small toys are included for children.  Suggested Shoebox Items
