The Real Impact of a Shoebox Gift
Thank you to everyone who contributed to The Shoebox Project in 2016!
This was our most successful year yet, with more than 36,500 Shoeboxes collected from caring community members and delivered to women in need in over 250 communities!
A Shoebox gift is a powerful reminder for a woman in crisis that she is valuable, worthy, and that someone in her community is thinking of her.
A Shoebox Says, "You Are Not Alone"
WHAT OVERWHELMING SUPPORT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
31,200 SHOEBOXES & COUNTING!
This year we set out with a goal to #JustGiveLove to as many women experiencing homelessness across North America as possible. With the help and generosity of hundreds of volunteers, we were able to give Shoeboxes filled with little luxuries to more than 31,200 women in more than 450 partnering agencies just in time for the holidays! We are happy to announce more than 240 communities received Shoeboxes in 2016!
We received this message on our Facebook account from a Shoebox recipient and wanted to share with you the impact of your donations:
"Thank you for your program! I received one of these precious gifts and it made me have more hopeful feelings and feelings of real happiness! Thank you."
Thank you for your support and your willingness to #JustGiveLove to local women experiencing homelessness during the holidays this year.
HOW YOU CAN HELP TODAY
While the majority of our local chapters only operate Shoebox gift drives during the holiday season, there are many other ways to stay involved throughout the year.
