NOVEMBER 15 - 22
DID YOU KNOW THAT 9.1 MILLION SHOEBOXES WERE PACK IN 2020?
While this is a huge amount, because of Covid-19, this is not as many as we had hoped for. In fact, this is about the same number that was packed in 2013!
THE GREAT LAKES AREA, WHICH KOKOMO IS PART OF, PACKED 795,801 SHOEBOXES. OUT OF THAT, THERE WERE 31,039 PACKED ONLINE
(the Kokomo area packed 245 online.)
THE 2021 GOAL FOR THE GREAT LAKES AREA IS 835,000 SHOEBOXES!
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN PACK A SHOEBOX ONLINE ANY TIME OF THE YEAR?
JUST CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW. THE COST IS $25/BOX.
(while this sounds expensive, this includes the $9. shipping)
You can also start purchasing and packing at home. If you need shoeboxes, please see Teresa!
New for 2021, Samaritan Purse has purchased a building in Chicago.
