One of the AHBA Care Endowment’s most popular event is the SHOEBOX PROGRAM in December. The inital concept was to sponsor 40 students by filling shoeboxes with gifts. The Associates Council planned a phone attack of the entire membership, and with an overwhelming response, every child was sponsored in a few short days. Additional requests from our generous members made it possible for 115 additional children.
The Associates Council has taken over this program, and it continues to grow and evolve every year. We have graduated from shoeboxes to backpacks and grown from 40 to 668 children sponsored.
