Shoe Boxes for Families is a daily program at Helping Hands. We often find clients do not have access to hygienic items that some of us take for granted. Shoeboxes are pre-filled with personal hygiene items such as razors, soap, deodorant, and toothbrushes, and are available at all times to anyone in need. This list of items can be expanded with amenities such as stamps and envelopes to contact family members, as well as other utilities. The shoe boxes are separated out by age and gender in order to provide the specific items that the people of Rowan County need. Towards Christmas and the holiday season, we add small toys for the children to enjoy. The defining nature of this program is that the boxes are available year-round, not simply during special seasons. If you are in need of any of these items, feel free to stop by the food bank and we will be happy to provide you with one.
