We are a non-profit service organization with an ongoing program for the collection and distribution of personal hygiene kits to the homeless and working poor.
Shoebox Ministry’s special event to assist the Valley’s homeless and provide them with an Easter gift. Be creative - feel free to decorate your box using the graphics from the flier or your own. Include a note of cheer and/or some Easter candy. Completed kits should be delivered to Shoebox one week before Easter so they can be delivered in time for Easter.

Purses are collected and filled with special gift items (e.g. perfume, jewelry, cosmetics and manicure sets). Fill a purse with any item that you feel would put a smile on a deserving mom’s face. Gift-filled purses are then given to children in family and domestic violence shelters so they can give them as a special gift to their mom. Please remember to remove all personal items from your purses before donating them.

Some of us may be fortunate enough to escape the summer heat, but that is not the case for our local homeless families. During the summer months we experience a decline of toiletry donations. We hope you will help by sharing the flyer with your friends, family, co-workers, civic groups or anyone willing to help. Remember to collect those free hotel toiletries and donate them to Shoebox!

New undergarments are collected and distributed to agencies and shelters that assist homeless men, women and children. Each morning as we dress, we take for granted that when we open our drawer, there will be clean undergarments awaiting us. Undergarments are a luxury item thousands of homeless men and women don’t have.
