2020 Holiday Drive for Victoria
Unfortunately, to protect the health and safety of our communities, we will not be collecting Shoeboxes this year.
We are still working hard to make sure no woman living in a shelter feels forgotten or alone this holiday season. But we can't do it alone!
Here's how you can help:
100% of your donation will go toward purchasing gift cards and essentials for local women impacted by homelessness.
Questions? Email our team at email@example.com
We would like to thank all of our amazing volunteers (from gift buyers to wrappers to collection stores and advertisers/printers) who helped make the 2019 Shoebox Project Victoria a resounding success! Together, we created 1055 gorgeous shoeboxes and helped raise the Christmas spirit of hundreds of women in transition homes and shelters around Southern Vancouver Island!
Homelessness in Victoria
Deb is a true blue Vancouver Island Girl, growing up in Port Alberni and moving to Victoria shortly after high school finished. The work force brought her into many fields including a long history in the hospitality field before moving into her love of animals where she continues to work at a vet clinic for the last 20 years. Outside of her work, she is an active volunteer member in the community being part of the Lions organization for the last 8 years. Some important projects included Shoreline Cleanup, Dogguide Walk, Toys 4 Kids and joining The Food Bank during Christmas time. She is also an active member of another organization empowering children through the fine arts. Her passion for volunteering runs deep, wanting to make a difference to her community and those in need. She is excited to be part of the Shoebox Project helping women bond together to know that others truly do care. When not at work or volunteering, she enjoys time with her husband, daughter and 2 dogs hiking, fishing and gardening.
