The Halifax Shoebox Project

The Halifax Shoebox Project has a goal of providing 1200 shoeboxes to women living in shelters this holiday season, and we want to help them reach that goal!

People can donate by filling a shoebox with things from a list of suggested items and dropping them off at my office – 3845 Joseph Howe Drive, Suite 203, Halifax, NS, B3L 4H9 – until Dec. 3.

If you want to make a donation item and aren’t sure what’s needed, here are some suggested items:

  • Something warm: socks, mitts, scarf, hat, hand warmers
  • Something sweet: nut-free chocolate and candy (not alcohol-filled)
  • Cough drops, multivitamins
  • Body or hand lotion, soaps, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss
  • Brush, comb, shampoo, conditioner
  • Nail polish, mascara, eye shadow, lipstick, lip balm
  • Purse-sized tissues, small cosmetic bag
  • Gift cards (Tim Hortons, Shoppers, McDonalds, etc. Please write the amount on the card or include the receipt)
  • Bus tickets
  • Journals, colouring books, pens, coloured pencils
  • Supportive message
