"I loved that I was able to make the project my own!" - Nicole, Local Coordinator, Broward County
"Inspecting each box and knowing it was put together by someone in the Chicago community and would make someone happy for the holidays was such a great feeling." - Emily, Local Coordinator, Chicago

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.
