Mission to Seafarers Shoebox Program

Christmas can arrive in a shoebox!

We need your help!
Taking donations between November 1st and December 22nd

The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is pleased to partner with Mission to Seafarers during their annual shoebox program.

Each December shoeboxes are filled with items bound for the crews of visiting ships in Halifax Harbour, many of whom are thousands of miles away from their homes and their families at this time of the year.

Last year, we filled over ninety shoeboxes and are hoping that we will match or exceed that number this year.

We welcome your donations of:

  • Hats, Scarfs, Gloves & Socks
  • Tooth Paste, Tooth Brush, Soap, Shampoo, Deodorant, Shaving Cream & Disposable Razors
  • Note Paper, Envelopes, Postcards, Pen & Hard Candy
  • Greeting cards along with small mementos

(Please note we cannot accept cookies or chocolate or clothing with draw strings or tassels.)

A special thank you to the management and staff of John David Shoes for their donation of this year’s shoeboxes.
