At the beginning of each year Volunteers from around the country signup to run the Santa Shoebox Project in their town. One of the highlights of the annual campaign is the Drop Off.
The Drop Off is an event when local donors who have pledged online, deliver their specially-made shoeboxes to a local sponsored venue on a specific date.
Drop Offs take place towards the end of October and early in November each year. They are run by Volunteers who scan and check every Shoebox to make sure all the children at a facility have a Santa Shoebox with their name on it, containing all 8 required items.
After Drop Off, delivery/collection and the handing out of Santa Shoeboxes takes place. This generally happens in November, taking into account storage, exams and school closing dates – all children must be present to receive their Santa Shoebox.
If you are unable to drop your Shoebox at the Drop Off to which you are linked, on the specified dates, you are able to drop your Shoebox at a Stor-Age Drop and Go from 01 October until the day BEFORE your designated Drop Off opens. Click on the Stor-Age logo for a complete list of Stor-Age Drop and Go points.
