Deadline for Shoebox Project gift cards is approaching

Help women in our community who are homeless or at risk of homelessness this Holiday Season

You can make a difference for women in our community who are homeless or at risk of homelessness this Holiday Season.

The Gift Card Drop off Deadline of Wednesday Dec. 8 is approaching quickly for The Campbell River Shoebox Project. Although donations and gift cards are coming in, they still have quite a ways to go to meet their goal of 525 Gift cards valuing $50 for vulnerable women in the community; 450 for Campbell River and 75 for Port Hardy/North Island.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, instead of providing gift-filled Shoeboxes this year, Gift Cards will be provided to local women who are less fortunate. The gifts will look different this year but the goal remains the same as always: to help every woman in our community feel a sense of joy, belongingness and hope this season.
