Contribute to the HISC Shoebox program. Each year Christmas boxes are provided free of charge to our visiting seafarers by HISC. Decorated shoe boxes filled with useful items are donated by numerous community churches, school children, individuals, and corporations from Texas and through the Midwest. This year, the Greater Houston Port Bureau is collaborating with the Houston Pilots and WISTA to help with this holiday project. You can help pack and/or donate Christmas boxes on Tuesday, Nov. 28, 1400-1900 at the Houston Pilot’s office.
