Packing regular shoeboxes is fine, but specially marked shoeboxes are available at several locations in Traverse City, Lake Leelanau and Acme.

In Acme, they can be found at Holiday Shopper or Acme Coin Laundry. In Traverse City they’re at Crow About It Coffee Shop, Aroma’s Coffee and Tea, Espresso Bay (both locations), Biggby Coffee, Cash Plus, Terrace Shopper, Double Edge Thrift Store and WLJN Radio.

In Lake Leelanau, find them at Pedaling Beans, The Red Heads Café and Leelanau Chiropractic. Instructions for filling shoeboxes can be found at or by calling Northwest Michigan Collection Center Coordinator Marcia Clone, 231-590-5069. Filled shoeboxes can be dropped off at the following locations:
