Homelessness in NYC
NYC Committee Chairs
Verunka founded the NYC Chapter of the Shoebox Project for Shelters in 2015. Since that time she’s led the chapter to outstanding success and has raised several hundreds-of-thousands of dollars in in-kind donations, runs outreach events at our partner shelters, as well as help raise thousands and thousands of Shoeboxes!
Jacob helped co-found the NYC Chapter in 2015 and has personally lifted, moved, carried, and crawled over every one of the thousands of Shoeboxes the NYC Chapter has delivered in the course of it’s history. He also helps run several aspects of the drive and likes to teach people about “the true face of homelessness in our city”.
Thank you to our generous supporters!
Make a Shoebox
Each Shoebox is special and made unique with your personal touch. It's fun and rewarding and every Shoebox helps a woman experiencing homelessness remember that she is loved and valuable.
Become an Organizer
Making a Shoebox is a great activity to do with your friends, family, coworkers, or any other group of people in your life! Host a party and do something good. Every Shoebox counts!
Items or in-kind donations are gladly accepted and will be used to fill even more Shoeboxes. If your company would like to donate, please contact us.
Spread the Word
