Our Past Work
In 2013, Marcèle Lamarche, the director of Le Chaînon shelter, wrote the following to us:
"I would like to express once again my most sincere gratitude for the wonderful Christmas gift shoeboxes we received from you a few days before December 25th. It is amazing how those boxes carried so many products along with messages of solidarity from our community towards women in need who seek shelter, help and hope at Le Chaînon. On a personal note, may I add that for homeless women who search for a roof, a meal and a bed every single night at Le Chaînon and whose shoes are worn out, the shoebox is a strong symbol of sisterhood."
Thank you to our sponsors!
Make a Shoebox
Each Shoebox is special and made unique with your personal touch. It's fun and rewarding and every Shoebox helps a woman experiencing homelessness remember that she is loved and valuable.
Become an Organizer
Making a Shoebox is a great activity to do with your friends, family, coworkers, or any other group of people in your life! Host a party and do something good. Every Shoebox counts!
Items or in-kind donations are gladly accepted and will be used to fill even more Shoeboxes. If your company would like to donate, please contact us.
