Three teenage boys are lugging boxes of donated shoes into a stately neoclassical home in Mytilini, the capital of the Greek island of Lesbos.

Gillan says if people miss this deadline they likely won’t be able to get insurance for 2016 and are subject to the federal penalties for failing to have health insurance.
