This holiday season, fill a standard-sized, decorated Shoebox with approximately $50 worth of gifts and essentials that any woman might enjoy, and include a warm greeting or message of support.

A 2018 point-in-time survey indicated that about 40% of people experiencing homelessness in Miami-Dade County had a disability, including a mental health, substance abuse and/or physical disability.

Hello my name is Loredana, I am excited to join The Shoebox Project as Local Coordinator for Miami. I was born and raised in Montréal. I moved to Florida in 2010. Two years ago I heard about the Shoebox Project and immediately fell in love with it. Helping women and showing them that they are important and loved. One small gesture can make the world of a difference. I hope you will join me in supporting and empowering women this holiday season! We are going to do great things here!
