Warm gloves, tasty chocolates and refreshing shampoos and conditioners might seem like normal things to have around this winter, but sadly for some women they are a luxury that they can’t afford. Dream Development is taking part in The Shoebox Project, which hopes to give warmth, comfort, confidence and a little holiday cheer to women experiencing homelessness this winter.

Want to help out?

Decorate a shoebox and fill it with useful treats valued at about $50, then take it down to your local drop off point. Visit Dream’s Twitter page for some ideas of what to put in the shoebox and what to leave out.

You can drop off your shoebox at the Homes by Dream welcome centre in Vista Crossing, or check www.shoeboxproject.com to find a drive near you (there are 35 communities across North America!).
