What is Shoebox Project?

In 2006, United Way of Greater Atlanta’s Shoebox Project was launched as a campaign to collect shoeboxes filled with toiletries for men, women and children in need throughout Greater Atlanta. More than 10 years later, Shoebox Project has been adopted by United Ways across the country and is making an unbelievable impact on the lives of those in need, volunteers and donors.
