Project Shoebox is an ongoing community service effort that my sister and I started in 2014. Special thanks to our friends at Nordstrom’s Rack, for the free shoe boxes, and to friends and managers at local hotels, for contributing soaps, shampoos and other toiletries for this important cause. We schedule get-togethers with friends and work on decorating the shoeboxes with duct tape and stickers; we add a positive message, and then we fill the boxes with toiletries and supplies that will be useful to neighbors who are in between housing. We drop off our boxes at different locations, including United Way and Loudoun Mobile Hope. This is a great community service project that can be completed by Girl Scout troops, after school clubs, and can be easily worked on even by very young volunteers!
