The Shoebox Project

Christmas spirit is about giving and sharing.  It is always wonderful when there are organizations that make it easy for us to share or lend a helping hand. I was happy to participate in The Shoebox Project where a friend organized donations and a party to assemble shoeboxes.  These shoeboxes are filled with useful gifts and treats with a $50 value then donated to a local Women's shelter.
This is such an amazing project.  Last year, this group my friend organized had donated 75 boxes and this year was an amazing 178 boxes.  My daughter and I will definitely participate every year!  Here are some of the local shelters that we were able to contribute to: Robertson House, Nazareth House, The Open Door and St. Vincent de Paul - Elisa House.
The shoebox drive is currently over, but save your goodies and look out for things throughout the year that you can donate in a shoebox!
