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.

Shoebox Holiday Drive

Dates: November 1- December 17, 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.

Previous Updates

May 15, 2021
​The St. Louis Shoebox Project had a successful Mother's 2021 Day Drive considering we were coming out of a pandemic.  We are so grateful for all that donated and because pandemic restrictions had loosened up St. Louis donated 21 beautiful gift-filled shoeboxes to Almost Home and Our Lady's Inn shelters.  

We will be working throughout the summer to share the word of The St. Louis Shoebox Project for Women, hope to get volunteers set up and get prepared for a stellar Thanksgiving and Holiday 2021 Drive!  

Please reach out if you want to be a part of something bigger, make a difference and make women impacted by homelessness feel special, loved and reminded they are strong women.

Thank you, Saint Louis, together we will make a difference!
