Ways to Give


Are you a student or teacher seeking a fun & meaningful charitable activity for your class, or club? Organize a Shoebox Gift Drive or Fundraiser today!

Why are Shoebox Gifts important?

Shoebox gifts provide a chance to show empathy and kindness to women and girls and challenge the stigmas and stereotypes around homelessness, particularly as it relates to women. It’s a meaningful way to give back to women and girls in your local community who have been impacted by homelessness. It’s a way to come together with your peers to support a cause that is important to all of you that is fun and impactful.

How a Simple Shoebox Can Help

For women who have been displaced from their homes and estranged from their families, special occasions can be particularly challenging. Often, women report feeling disconnected from society, invisible and alone. A Shoebox gift is a powerful reminder for a woman that she has not been forgotten and that she remains a valued and respected member of her community.
