The shoeboxes are filled with toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. The shoeboxes will be shipped down to Charlotte, North Carolina, where they will then be distributed around the world to war torn countries and Native American reservations. Ukrainian children received a shipment of shoeboxes right before the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
