About The Shoebox Project
The Shoebox Project supported by Dream, collects and distributes gift-filled Shoeboxes to women impacted by homelessness in communities across Canada and the US. Each thoughtfully created and decorated Shoebox is filled with items valued at $50 that can enhance self-esteem and reduce feelings of isolation for women in need.
In their founding year, 2011, The Shoebox Project delivered 400 Shoeboxes to residents of four Toronto women’s shelters. Through word of mouth and the support of some loyal sponsors, the initiative grew very quickly. Since then, The Shoebox Project has distributed approximately 180,000 Shoeboxes, valued at 9 million dollars, and has about 70 volunteer-run Local Chapters in operation across North America.
