The Shoebox Project for Shelters (supported by Dream) - Guelph-Wellington Chapter

Little luxuries are items that enhance our lives in small ways. We rarely think about them. Yet a coffee card, lotions, chocolates or a warm hat can help make a woman feel special. This holiday season, we are looking to members of our generous community to fill a shoebox with $50 worth of these little luxuries, and then The Shoebox Project for Shelters (supported by Dream) will deliver it to women who are living in and / or accessing the services of Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis or Family Counselling and Support Services for Guelph-Wellington during the holidays.

This small gesture of filling a shoebox, decorating it and including an inspirational card or personalized note has a big impact on the woman who receives it. A special gift, just for her, will not only brighten her day during difficult times, but it will also let her know that someone in her community is thinking about her, and remind her that she is not forgotten. We call this showing some “Shoebox Love.”

This year, we hope to collect at least 175 shoeboxes for local women in need, and show the women of Guelph-Wellington that they are part of a community that cares about them!

You can help by either filling a shoebox or making a cash donation to support this year's (or a future) shoebox drive in our community.
