November 4th is the date that filled Shoeboxes of Hope need to be handed in for collection and distribution to the needy children, elderly people and families in Eastern Europe. If you saw our earlier post on this and planned to act, you still have time. We hear that Wilkos can be a useful, low-cost source of many of the items suggested.
