Barrie Jr. Sharks Supporting Shoebox Project


Nov. 01, 2023


This holiday season, our Barrie Jr. Sharks will continue to support The Shoebox Project - and we're asking all Sharks teams for help!

The Shoebox Project collects standard-sized, decorated shoeboxes filled with gifts and essentials and distributes these gifts to local women’s shelters and community agencies serving women impacted by homelessness.

How Individuals Can Help:

  1. Select your Shoebox & wrap if necessary.
  2. Fill your Shoebox with essentials and small gifts - $50 is a suggested target amount.
  3. Write a message of inspiration or support.
  4. Drop it off at the Barrie Jr. Sharks vs. Ridley College Tigers game at 2:00pm on Sunday November 12th, at the East Bayfield Community Centre.

How Your Team Can Help:

  1. Decide how many shoeboxes your team can build. Boxes should contain roughly $50 of gifts and essentials.
  2. Collect small gifts and essentials from teammates for your box. Ideas include gift cards (small denomination, $10-15 suggested), shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, make-up, socks, chocolate, candy, and other essentials and/or treats.
  3. Build your shoeboxes, and wrap them up (but not sealed - wrap top and bottom separately). Don’t forget to include a note of support or inspiration! 
  4. Bring your Shoeboxes to the Barrie Jr. Sharks vs. Ridley College Tigers game at 2:00pm on Sunday November 12th at the East Bayfield Community Centre.
