The Shoebox Project

A SMALL GESTURE MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE!

Join us in helping women living in shelters by supporting the Shoebox Project,.an initiative that asks people to fill a shoebox with little luxuries up to a maximum of $50 that are delivered to women experiencing homelessness in our community. You can drop off your shoebox at any Tamarack Sales Centre, Design Centre, and our Head Office November 13th – December 18th.
