Shoebox Collection and Wrapping for Holiday Hope Chests

It's never too early to think about those who will be in need during the upcoming winter holiday season! Help us get a head start on our Holiday Hope Chests program by collecting clean, empty shoeboxes (from shoe stores near you, or from your own, your family or friend's closets) and then wrapping them in winter themed paper. You can even get the kids involved by helping to wrap the boxes or by having them color your own personalized wrapping paper. Be sure that the lids are wrapped separately so that small gifts can be placed inside, and please, NO BOOT sized boxes.

Check out this video on tips for wrapping a shoebox with attached lid;

If you want to just collect the shoeboxes and drop them off so others can wrap them, that will be great, too! AND if you are an individual or group looking for a way to become involved, you can make an appointment to come to the Banana Factory to pick up boxes to take with you to wrap on your own time. We have wrapping paper to offer groups who want to do this.

Drop off locations:
- our office at the Banana Factory, 9AM-3PM, Monday, through Friday. Ring the buzzer on the wall outside the main doors by the parking lot for ArtsQuest staff to let you in and leave the boxes in the lobby. (you may need to call the number posted on the door for ArtsQuest staff)
- Cancer Support Community of GLV, , 944 Marcon Blvd, STE 110, Allentown, PA 18109, Monday thru Thursday, 9AM – 3PM (they are located by the LVI Airport.)
