The 2021 Shoebox Project Initiative
Thank you for supporting the 2021 Shoebox Project Initiative
Thanks to the incredible support from OMA members, staff, and many others, the OMA and the OMF had another very successful fundraising campaign in support of The Shoebox Project.
2021 Shoebox Project fundraising efforts
This is the fourth year that the OMA and OMF raised funds for the Shoebox Project with this initiative honouring the late Dr. Elana Fric who was an active OMA member and Council Delegate and in memory of Keira Kagan, daughter of Dr. Jennifer Kagan.
This year with your support we assisted 560 women across Ontario.
What is The Shoebox Project?
The Shoebox Project for Women, supported by Dream, collects and distributes gift-filled Shoeboxes to women who are living in shelters, on the streets or in other under-housed situations. Each shoebox gift is valued at $50 and filled with warm mittens and hats, hygiene products, gift cards and hand-written messages of encouragement.
The Shoebox Project is committed to spreading joy and a sense of belonging to women affected by homelessness. Gifts will continue to be a powerful reminder for a woman that she is not forgotten, and that she remains a valued and respected member of her community.
