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.
With a population of 117,00, Lethbridge had 223 homeless

I have a heart for the community wherever my family puts down roots. I have spent a lifetime helping those in need from behind the scenes quietly collecting needs for women’s shelters, helping women set up their own new businesses, and being a part of something bigger than myself. There are so many that are invisible to the world and they need to know they are valued. The Shoebox Project for women gives me the opportunity to let women know they are cared for.
