Whether it’s through monetary gifts, in-kind donations, cause-marketing campaigns or volunteering, our corporate partners have been a vital part of helping us deliver comfort and compassion to women impacted by homelessness. There are several ways to get your company involved.
Making a financial donation is a simple and efficient way to demonstrate your company's support of local women impacted by homelessness. The funds we receive from generous corporate donors allow us to effectively support our 500+ volunteers, to deliver our programs in under-served communities, and to create new, exciting initiatives that will touch the lives of thousands of vulnerable Canadians.
We are always seeking donations of the many goods and services we rely on to deliver our programs across Canada. The items we need most for our Shoebox drives are gift cards, full-sized soaps/shampoos, toiletries, cosmetics, socks and winter accessories. In-Kind donations can be made to our National Head Office in Toronto, or directly to your Local Chapter.
Employee Shoebox drives are:
A meaningful way to give back to the communities where you do business
A fun, hands-on team building activity for all staff, whether located at one central office, working remotely at home, or spread out across the country
Easy to plan and execute
Flexible; can be tailored to suit any occasion, corporate environment, timeline or budget
A non-denominational holiday activity for staff of all backgrounds and beliefs
Suggested occasions to organize a Shoebox drive:
Holiday Season -- November & December
International Women's Day -- March 8
Mother's Day -- May
Have another date in mind? No problem! We can help you organize an event at any time of the year.
A partnership with The Shoebox Project means something different to everyone, and we know that what's important to one business may be irrelevant to another. For that reason, we have offered some options in our sponsorship deck, but our preference is to build a custom sponsorship package that suits your company's unique needs and addresses your strategic priorities.
We are excited to partner with Kits for a Cause to offer another easy way to give back as a team. This opportunity is perfect for a group without a big budget to work with, as individual team members and supporters can make financial donations toward your event’s goal. With the money you fundraise, Kits for a Cause will send you all the materials you need to complete your Shoeboxes. Our team will work with you to distribute your gifts to local women impacted by homelessness. Through their Wish List fundraising platform, the individual donations you receive will be eligible for tax receipts from a partner charity, the Unity Values Foundation.
