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.
I work full-time as a Nurse Practitioner in Primary Care. I am a wife and proud mother to three daughters and an advocate for improving access to healthcare. As a child, I grew up with a strong interest in helping others which was fostered by my parents and maternal grandparents. I recall collecting donations from my family to purchase groceries for a family in need at Christmas at a mere age of 10 and first volunteered at a local Food Bank with my grandmother while in middle school. I love art and am well-known for my homemade cards- which aligns perfectly with the Shoebox project's vision to supply hand-written notes with all of our Shoeboxes.
