Here's how you can support us in the mean time:
100% of your donation will go toward purchasing gift cards and essentials for local women impacted by homelessness.
Dates: November 20 - December 6 or 13 2021
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. Take your finished Shoebox gift to one of the drop-off locations below, and our volunteers will distribute these gifts to local women’s shelters and community agencies serving women impacted by homelessness across the United States. You can also choose to only donate gift cards with a value of at least $50.
If you are donating gift cards, we are accepting drop-offs until December 6th.

I am so lucky to be able to call myself a busy wife and mom. I am truly blessed to have a loving husband, 2 healthy and active children, a supportive family, and a pillow to rest my head on each night. The Shoebox Project has inspired me to give back, and to set an example for my children, by engaging my local community to join me in performing small acts of kindness and comfort for women the Rhode Island area who are facing difficult challenges every day.
