The 2022 Shoebox Project Campaign
The Shoebox Project is a fundraising initiative to support women in need
A simple act of kindness to support women
Did you know, when a woman cannot properly care for her hygiene, it can block motivation to find gainful employment, housing and other essential needs?
Failure to secure needs often leads to despair and worsens an already poor view of self.
Help us meet our goal of raising $25,000 in support of the Shoebox Project for Women. The Ontario Medical Association will be generously matching donations of up to $10,000. With your donation, we can help even more women purchase basic living essentials such as toiletries and food.
For the past five years, the OMF has supported the Shoebox Project for Women in memory of Dr. Elana Fric, who was an active OMA member and council delegate, and Keira Kagan, daughter of Dr. Jennifer Kagan, an OMA member.
Your gift will be a powerful reminder for women that they are not alone and have a strong community behind them.
Through a partnership with organizations like the Shoebox Project, the OMF is working to advance health equity and support those most affected by social determinants of health. Thanks to the heartfelt support and incredible engagement from OMA members, staff and other donors across the province this initiative has raised over $65,000 since 2018.
The campaign will run from Monday, Nov. 21 until Monday, Dec. 5.
