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.

Hello, I’m Emily. I’m a student in London, Ontario studying Criminal Justice. I have a huge passion for volunteering and advocating for the homeless and those struggling in my city. I attend Brescia University at Western which is an all-women’s campus, focusing on female empowerment, female leadership, and the overall success of women everywhere. Therefore, the Shoebox Project is especially important to me because it focuses on helping women at risk feel more valued and respected and aims to leave a positive impact on women who need it. The Shoebox Project is an important reminder that we are all here to help others. Women especially face many barriers when living on the street and giving women these items may make their experience feel a little less lonely.
