2020 Holiday Drive
To protect the health and safety of our communities, we will not be collecting Shoeboxes this year.
We still very much need your help to make sure local women impacted by homelessness receive a special gift and feel supported by their community. You can make a financial donation now, or stay tuned for more info on our virtual holiday campaign coming this Fall!

Attention nifty knitters and crafters of crochet: In 2015, we started a tradition of including a hand-made hat with each and every Shoebox, and we hope to keep this tradition alive - but we need your help to ensure we have sufficient hats this year! If you're interested in lending your helping, crafty hands to donate one or more hats to the cause, please contact us at email@example.com for further details.

Make a Shoebox
Each Shoebox is special and made unique with your personal touch. It's fun and rewarding and every Shoebox helps a woman experiencing homelessness remember that she is loved and valuable.
