The Shoebox Project is an annual campaign that collects and distributes shoeboxes filled with basic necessities to homeless women and children in Greater Atlanta.

The Issue

Homeless women and children are often left without even the most basic necessities we take for granted.

United Way's Role

For the past 10 years, United Way leads the annual campaign that provides thousands of shoeboxes with toiletries to homeless women and children throughout homeless shelters in Greater Atlanta.

The Results

Last year, more than 41,000 shoeboxes were collected for 134 agencies and shelters to benefit homeless women and children with a value of more than $830,000.
