Support Seafarers' House Shoebox Christmas
This effort is well underway but we have lots of shoeboxes and not enough gear and goodies for our mariners! Help us by donating hygiene and toiletry items for crew members who will be away from home during the holidays. Our ship visitors will carry these gifts aboard the visiting ships here in Port Everglades throughout December and into early January.
We need filling for the beautiful shoeboxes so many have shared! And -- we need help from volunteers! Our wish list includes: toothbrushes; toothpaste; white athletic socks; shampoo; playing cards; and willing hands and hearts! Help us extend the holiday spirit across the globe with our gifts to visiting mariners!

If you cannot wrap or pack a shoebox but would like to help- it is easy to donate online to help us purchase calling cards for the Shoebox Gifts -- to help those who are far away from home at the holidays make that all-important call to loved ones.
The funds raised through these donations will support the mission of Seafarers' House as we work to bring faith, fellowship, friendship and cheer to those who visit and work in beautiful Port Everglades.
