Helping Those in Need

The 8th Annual Shoebox Project is an effort to provide shoeboxes filled with everyday toiletries to be distributed to many of our nonprofit partners. Over 9,700 boxes have been requested to help those in need.

Basic comforts such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and other personal-care items are a luxury for many San Antonio children, veterans, elderly, homeless and vulnerable populations. Change a life today by participating in the Shoebox Project.
