#OKWGivesBack | The Shoebox Project Mother's Day Drive

Back to Home
This year, the team of One King West came together to support a charity known as The Shoebox Project for their Mother's Day Drive. This foundation is dedicated to supporting women who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness in communities across Canada and the US. By filling Shoeboxes valued at $50 with items such as shampoo, soap, mittens, nail polish and chocolate, these Shoeboxes can help enhance self-esteem and reduce feelings of isolation for women in crisis.
Mother's Day is a special time for families as it is a day dedicated to recognizing the woman in your life who has been there for you every step of the way. For some Mothers who are in a less fortunate situation, having been displaced from their homes and isolated from society, Mother's Day is a particularly challenging time. A Shoebox is a reminder to these women that they are an important, valued and respected member of her community. It was One King West's goal to support as many women and Mothers in crisis as we could and remind them that there are people who care about them. With only one week to collect donations for the Mother's Day Drive, we were able to decorate and fill an amazing total of TWELVE Shoeboxes!
After collecting shoeboxes, getting decorating materials like wrapping paper and tissue paper, we were ready to start our very own Shoebox-Making Party! We needed space to get down to business and thankfully, we had the perfect option right in our own building.... The 48! The 48, located on our 48th floor, rent luxurious executive meeting and office spaces right in the heart of downtown Toronto in the Financial District. Luckily for us, they had an available room with spectacular 270 views of the city and lake but it didn't really matter which room we were in as each space offer AMAZING views. We did take some time to admire them of course, but then it was GO GO GO!

After wrapping the TWELVE Shoeboxes, and of course, taking a few breaks to enjoy the complimentary specialty coffee and teas from The 48, we were ready to fill them with all the goodies! These goodies consisted of eye shadow, eos lip balm, socks, deodorant, hair sprays and mousses, moisturizer, and many more products that every woman could appreciate.
Look at all of these beautiful Shoeboxes!
Thank you to everyone for helping us support women in need and reminding them that they matter.

Happy Mother's Day from One King West and remember to #JustGiveLove!
