Santa needs your Help - 15th Annual Shoebox Drive for the Elderly

Santa needs your Help - 15th Annual Shoebox Drive for the ElderlyCastelo de Sonhos registered charity has 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 15th 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 suggestions below. Please pack carefully and wrap breakables well.

4. Wrap the shoebox and label for man or women, or couple.

5. Deliver filled shoeboxes to ‘Castelo de Sonhos’ in Silves, the Holiday Inn, Algarve in Armação de Pêra, or the Primavera Restaurante/Snack bar in Tunes between 15th November and 9th December 2019. Or on Saturday 30th November you can also bring them along on to the Autumn/ Christmas fair taking place at the Guia Football Club Snack Bar from 11:00-16:00.
