2020 Holiday Gift Drive:
Unfortunately, to protect the health and safety of our communities, we will not be collecting Shoeboxes this year.
We are still working hard to make sure no woman living in a shelter feels forgotten or alone this holiday season. But we can't do it alone!
Here's how you can help:
100% of your donation will go toward purchasing gift cards and essentials for local women impacted by homelessness.

Homelessness in New Brunswick
Born in Ontario, I moved to the province of Quebec at the age of two. I lived there for 37
years before moving to Bathurst last year. Mother of five wonderful children, I now live in the Acadian Peninsula with my beloved wife and our two youngest kids. Since I was a teenager, I’ve always been motivated by helping others in different ways. My strongest desire was to be a kind of fairy godmother who would have the mission of recognizing the value of others, by showing them appreciation of who they were and what they accomplished. Moreover, the feminine condition has interested me for a long time. So, I have been working in perinatal for several years. When I moved to Bathurst, I immediately wanted to get involved in my community. When I found out about The Shoebox Project, I knew it was the perfect fit for me: providing recognition of
the importance and the value of homeless women around me, by supporting and letting
them know how important and loved they are.
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.
Spread the Word
We need help to spread the word in your community. Please consider giving us a shout out or sharing what you're doing on social media. It really helps!
