Shoe Box Appeal Packing Day

Planning Room, Level 1 NUSU

Helping our Homeless Shoebox Appeal 

This year Helping our Homeless society are running their annual christmas shoebox appeal for those in crisis. The society are encouraging students, societies, sports teams and staff to create shoeboxes for those in need. 

Shoeboxes will be donated to local charities, such as Shelter North East and Destiny’s Streetworx, who will give them to those most in need during the christmas period. 

The final hand in date for the shoeboxes is Wednesday the 11th of  December. The main donation point for the boxes is the Students Union Reception, more donation points across campus will be released soon. 


Today Helping our Homeless will be sorting and wrapping the donations they have received so far. 

Come down to venue to help sort and wrap the shoe boxes ready for delivery. This activity will help you get in the Christmas spirit with some fun xmas music on in the background. 

Bring your friends, everyone welcome.
