Thank you to everyone who supported our Virtual Shoebox Drive in 2020! We are so grateful that we were able to provide gifts to local women impacted by homelessness during this particularly difficult time.
The drive is now over until next holiday season, but you can support our efforts all year long!
Here's how you can help in the off-season:

Sarah Weaver is looking forward to bringing The Shoebox Project to Chatham-Kent this year. She believes it is crucial to actively engage the community and advocate on behalf of important causes that aim to make Chatham-Kent a better place to live. The Shoebox Project gives Sarah the opportunity to recognize and support women who find themselves in need in CK. Let's work together to make sure every woman in CK gets a gift this holiday season!
