There are three age groups 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14. Items to place in the shoebox include a toy to embrace; school supplies, hygiene items, or other items possible are t-shirts, socks, sunglasses, hair ribbons. Please do not send liquid, chocolate, glass, medications or vitamins. Also items to avoid are those with war-related themes such as toy guns, military figures or knives.
