The Real Impact of a Shoebox Gift
We have over 45 local chapters across the U.S. and Canada that are running holidays drives this year!
The holidays are often one of the loneliest times of the year for women experiencing homelessness. This year can be different for her. Join us as we #JustGiveLove this holiday season.
A Shoebox is a powerful reminder that she is valuable and not alone; someone in her community is thinking of her. We can give her warmth, comfort, and confidence, by making a Shoebox gift just for her this year. Get involved in your community before it's too late and make a Shoebox for a local woman in need of a little holiday cheer!
