Want to really make a difference in someone’s life this holiday season?

The Shoebox Project collects and distributes gifts in the form of shoeboxes to women in shelters across Canada.  Each shoebox is filled with necessities – and a few added little luxuries that a woman would enjoy but would not splurge on for herself in difficult times. These shoeboxes let the women know they are special and not forgotten.

The Shoebox Project was founded in 2011 by four sisters-in-law – Caroline Mulroney Lapham and Jessica, Vanessa and Katy Mulroney. They were looking for a hands-on way to give back to their community. It has since ballooned –  the Shoebox Project delivered gifts to 9,100 women in 188 shelters and outreach programs in 26 communities across the country

Putting together a shoebox is easy (and fun) and this small gesture of kindness is very much appreciated by its recipient. The goal is to brighten the days of women living in our country’s shelters and let them know that their community does care about them.
