With the Holiday season approaching, the Vanier Key Society and I have launched a fundraiser this November. This fundraiser is for the Shoe Box Project. The Shoe Box Project is a non-profit organization that gives back to women impacted by homelessness through gift-filled shoeboxes. These small gifts are a way to remind them just how valuable they are. Additionally, it is a great way to share compassion, empathy and kindness with women in shelters. Although we’ve already had our bake sale, you can still get involved! We encourage you to bring new and/or unused items that we’ll need to fill up our gift boxes. Our donation box is located in Student Life (B-205). Here are a few items you might consider donating: lip balm, body soap, shampoo, lotion, toothpaste, deodorant etc. We are also accepting small clothing items such as hats, gloves and socks. Our deadline for collecting goods is November 24th. Make sure to get involved! If you have any questions or want more info, send me a MIO Claudia Bruscia.
