Annual Dominican Republic Holiday Shoebox Drive for Dove Youth Development Center
Please help out our inspiring SHBHU Family, the Hakim Family, who leads this annual Compassion Mission for our friends in the Dominican Republic each year!
Dove Missions Youth Center in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic is serving 144 Dominican and Haitian children and their families this year who are living in extreme poverty. They provide educational services, school supplies (including uniforms) , extra curricular activities, and food for the student’s families. Each December, SHBHU provides each child with a shoe box filled with gifts, hygiene items, sweet treats, school supplies and a personal letter labeled especially for each child! You will receive the specific name and age of the child which makes for a personal and loving touch.  This is often the only gift they will receive and puts a huge smile on their face! It truly fills them with hope and love. We received a list of all 144 children’s names, gender and ages this year.  Will your Ambassadors and Small Handers pack with love and decorate a shoe box or two or three?  All items must be received by December 3 to get the boxes to them before their celebration.  Please contact SHBHU at for names and ages and the list of drop off locations for decorated and packed showboxes of LOVE!
