ShoeBox Project for Shelters – Findlay Creek
When women flee an abusive relationship they sometimes arrive at a shelter with just the clothes on their back and children in tow. What personal belongings they can grab isn’t much.
The Shoebox Project for Shelters, co-ordinated in Ottawa by Tara Shields, Laurence Way and a host of helpers, offers women staying in area shelters luxury gift items to make them feel special. The experience is turning out to be just as rewarding for the receiver as it is the giver.
