Allstate Canada opens its doors to collect donations for The Shoebox Project for Women

A shoebox filled with hygiene products to be given out to a woman in need

Allstate Canada is proud to announce that between November 14 – December 16, 2022, select agencies will act as drop-off locations for gift-filled shoeboxes on behalf of The Shoebox Project for Women. This will be the first year Allstate agencies will accept shoeboxes for the charity since before the pandemic.

The Shoebox Project aims to share empathy, kindness and compassion with local women impacted by homelessness through the collection and distribution of gift-filled shoeboxes and messages of support. Each box is filled with essential items that can help reduce isolation and enhance self-worth.

Want to create a perfect Shoebox?

The boxes can be filled with basic personal hygiene essentials, allowing women to feel more confident, and with special treats to send the invaluable message to a woman that she remains worthy of nice things and deserves to feel special.

A few suggested items to include:

  • soap
  • shampoo and conditioner
  • deodorant
  • toothpaste
  • fuzzy socks
  • a writing journal and pen
  • nail polish
  • high quality beauty products

For a list of what should and shouldn’t be included in your shoebox gift, consult with The Shoebox Project website.
