Thank you for your support!

Thanks to the generosity of our community, this year we delivered $10,000 in gift cards in celebration of International Women's Day and 2844 gifts during the course of our Shoebox Holiday Drive, at a total value of $139,700. All together for 2021, we provided $149,700 worth of donations to women impacted by homelessness across 39 shelters and agencies within the Lower Mainland.

Keep an eye out on this page for more events in 2022. Until then, you can support our efforts all year long!

Cette saison des fêtes, créez une Boîte à chaussures virtuelle​

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.
