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:
Cette année, nous nous sommes tous sentis isolés, et en particulier les femmes dans les refuges. Remplir une Boîte à chaussures peut sembler différent cette année, mais son impact est le même.
Créez une Boîte à chaussures virtuelle et en quelques minutes, vous rappellerez à une femme touchée par l’itinérance qu’elle est appréciée et que quelqu’un se sent concerné par son bien-être.
My name is Julie Seguin, I am an executive assistant with more than 10 years experience in helping my community. I know firsthand how hard it can be for women to start new, start fresh and how it's easy to get discouraged. The Shoebox project is a cause close to my heart as it helps women remember they are not alone, they are worth it and that they are a valued member of our society. It shows women we can lift each other up in time of need. This year particularly with the pandemic, it is easy to feel isolated and forgotten. I want to work with our community to give hope and strength to women around us. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. - Mother Teresa
