Shoebox Project drop-off locations are OPEN and ready for your deliveries!

April 11, 2024

Every year our Shoebox Project provides thousands of shoeboxes filled with toiletries to men, women, and children experiencing homelessness. You can support by donating filled boxes (or drawstring bags), donating money, buying items from our wishlist and attending or hosting your own volunteer event or party.

Why Participate? 

The Shoebox Project is more than just a charitable act; it’s a way for us to come together as a community and make a meaningful impact in the lives of others. By participating, you’ll be spreading love, joy, and hope to those who may be facing difficult times. 

What Goes in a Shoebox? 

We encourage you to fill your shoebox with a combination of practical items and small luxuries that can brighten someone’s day. The list of necessities is here >>

Feel free to get creative and personalize your shoebox to make it extra special!
