Our Local Coordinator
Libby is thrilled to have the opportunity to coordinate The Haldimand-Norfolk Counties Shoebox Project this year. She loves that she has the chance to volunteer for such a unique and essential charity. There are women in her community who have found themselves in difficult circumstances over the holiday season and they deserve to receive a gift that can give them a glimmer of hope and a message of love. That is her goal: to spread hope and love.
