About the Shoebox Project

Beverly Carter Notary Public and staff are excited to be taking part in the 2018 Shoebox Project – our 5th year of support. This amazing project provides shoeboxes filled with gifts to women in local shelters during the holiday season. Each shoebox contains items that a woman would enjoy, but would not necessarily splurge on during difficult times. With your help, we can show women around Victoria that they are special and have not been forgotten.

We are accepting donations of completed shoeboxes, individual items, or cash donations (which we will apply towards the purchase of items to fill the shoeboxes). The shoeboxes will be picked up December 18th for distribution, so please deliver your donations to us prior to that date at 240-2950 Douglas St.

For updated information about the project, please visit our Facebook Page or the Shoebox Project.


Decorate Your Shoebox

Wrap or decorate the lid and bottom separately of a standard shoe box (no boot boxes please). The lid and box must be wrapped separately so that it can be opened for inspection.
