Our holiday season Shoebox drive is coming soon! Please check back soon for more information on how you can support women impacted by homelessness right here in our community.
100% of your donation will go toward purchasing gift cards and essentials for local women impacted by homelessness.
Dates: November 10 - December 10, 2022
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. Our volunteers distribute these gifts to local women’s shelters and community agencies serving women impacted by homelessness across the United States.
Whether you donate a Shoebox virtually or in-person, it is more than just a gift. It is a rare and powerful reminder that we all matter.
Please check each location for their operation hours.

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!
