14th Annual Shoebox Drive for the Elderly

‘The Castelo de Sonhos’ registered charity helps more than 200 elderly in need living in this area. This Christmas we would again like to help them and we are now planning the 14th Annual Shoebox Drive for the Elderly. The boxes will be delivered by the ‘Castelo de Sonhos’ team. We hope you will participate.

Here is what you’ll need to do:
1. Find an empty shoe box. Most shoe shops are only too pleased to give you one.
2. Decide whether your gift will be for a man or a woman.
3. Fill your shoe box with a variety of gifts (each gift may be individually wrapped) see sugg-estions below. Please pack care-fully and wrap breakables well.
4. Wrap the shoebox and label for man or women, or couple.
5. Deliver filled shoeboxes to ‘Castelo de Sonhos’ or the Holiday Inn, Algarve in Armação de Pêra between 15 November and 9 December 2018 or on Saturday 24 November at the 2nd Annual Autumn/ Christmas fair taking place at the Guia Football Club Snack Bar from 11am-4pm.
