Originally started by North West Rotary clubs in 1994, the Rotary Shoebox Scheme was then intended to provide children of Iasi, in north-east Romania with Christmas gifts. Since then, the scheme has become a national project supported not only by Rotary clubs but also by individuals, schools, companies, churches, Inner Wheel, Rotaract & Interact etc. Indeed we are delighted to welcome anyone who would like to be involved.
Each year we now send around 50,000 Shoeboxes or gifts. SEE BOX DISTRIBUTION
