CAMPBELL RIVER SHOEBOX PROJECT

The Campbell River Shoebox Project Local Chapter encourages our community to spread joy
and kindness through a meaningful gift-giving action.

November 14, 2022 is the official launch date for The Campbell River Shoebox Project “Spark
Kindness and Watch Her Shine” holiday campaign. The organization encourages community
members to create and donate a Shoebox, to host a pre-holiday “Shoebox-raiser”, make a Virtual
Shoebox or to make a monetary donation, all in support of local women impacted by
homelessness.
The goal this year is to provide 575 Shoeboxes for local vulnerable women; 455 for Campbell
River and 120 for Port Hardy/North Island.
Gift filled Shoeboxes valuing $50 will be accepted at the following Drop off Locations between
November 14th to Wednesday December 7th:
In Campbell River: Coastal Community Credit Union (Discovery Harbour), La Tee Da
Lingerie (Shoppers Row), or Coho Books (Willow Point)
In Port Hardy: North Island Crisis & Counselling Centre Society (Beverly Parnham
Way)
Shoeboxes ($50 value) should include:
$10 gift card to a grocery or drug store
Shampoo and Conditioner
Body Wash
Deodorant
Toothbrush and Toothpaste
Socks
Chocolate/Candy (nut free)
Cosmetics
A cozy accessory (handwarmers, hat, mitts, scarf)
Skin care item (face cream, body/hand lotion, cleanser)
Self-care item (journal, lip balm, colouring book)

See the Campbell River page of The Shoebox Project website at shoeboxproject.com for
more information including what to include and what not to include in a Shoebox gift, as well as
how to create a Virtual Shoebox.

The focus of the campaign is to encourage community support for women and gender-diverse
people who are homeless or at-risk. This population faces specific vulnerabilities, such as hidden
homelessness, domestic violence, and increased rates of poverty and unemployment, particularly
for Indigenous women and those with intersectional identities. This year, these risks have been
fueled by the record level of inflation, the ongoing housing crisis, and the rising cost of food.
