2021 Shoebox Holiday Drive

We're excited to be launching the 2021 holiday season gift drive! Please check this page again soon for more information.

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.

Thank you for your support!

We had a successful first holiday drive! Our community raised $1,600 and filled over 60 boxes for The Raphael House of Portland, a shelter that serves survivors of domestic violence. We are grateful to have been able to come together as a community and for the support of CUP of Tea, Therapydia, InTouch Physical Therapy, Lake Oswego Dentistry, and Rite Aid Sunnyside Pharmacy.

We are looking forward to our Summer Solstice drive where we will again build gift boxes for those in need. Until then, you can support our efforts all year long!

Here's how you can help in the off-season:
