PACK A SHOEBOX
Bring a child or youth a personalized gift of joy and friendship!
WITH OVER 18,000 SHOEBOXES DISTRIBUTED, THE CHILDREN & YOUTH THANK YOU!
Individuals, schools and community groups across Canada are adopting our gift-filled shoebox project as a gesture of friendship that helps the students who receive them to celebrate the joy of education. What a perfect way to engage in reconciliation!
For I Love First Peoples, gift-filled shoeboxes represent an opportunity to engage with communities, as we hold school celebration events with celebrity friends and distribute gift-filled boxes to every child and youth. This initial event enables us to find out how we can continue to support education in each community, because each community has different needs and we place a high value on our ability to remain adaptable. We collect gift-filled shoeboxes during the fall campaign from November 1st to December 15th.
In each shoebox, we promote education and friendship. We encourage the donation of quality, fun and educational gifts.
You can send us a gift-filled shoebox, or pack one through our online store. Online
purchases are eligible for a tax receipt, which will be sent to you in February (in Canada).
