The 2020 Ottawa Shoebox Project Holiday Drive
Questions? Contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Who We Are
Our Ottawa drive, run entirely by volunteers and supported by our generous Ottawa business and media partners, is a chapter of The Shoebox Project for Women charity: a non-religious, unaffiliated charity, based on the values of equality, diversity and respect for all.
What We Do
We seek from the public Shoeboxes filled with $50 worth of high quality, newly purchased little luxuries which we collect, quality check and then deliver to women who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness.

Make a Shoebox
Every Shoebox you donate helps a local woman experiencing homelessness or at-risk of homelessness remember she is special and loved.
Knowing what you cannot include in your Shoebox is just as important as what you can include in it. Please click "Learn More" below for our Shoebox-making guidelines.
Host a Shoebox-Making Party
Hosting a Shoebox-making party is fun, impactful way to make Shoeboxes.
Whether it's a holiday party for family and friends, or an at-work party drive, we’ll help you make it memorable and meaningful for you and your guests.

Important: Our drive ends on
December 15, 2019 so you will need to schedule your parties well before that date.
Become a Volunteer
We need a lot of help to carry out our drive. Offering to pick-up and deliver Shoeboxes, participating in quality checking, staffing our head office etc. are just some of the ways you can help.
Make a Corporate Donation
Whether it’s through monetary gifts, in-kind donations, partnerships, cause-marketing campaigns or volunteering, our corporate partners have been a vital part of helping us deliver comfort and compassion to women impacted by homelessness. There are several ways to get your company involved. Please click the button below below for full details on how you can help.
Spread the Word
It's fun to share photos of your Shoebox or your Shoebox-Making Party on social media. Please remember to use the hashtags #ShoeboxProjectOttawa and #ShoeboxProject and tag us.
