West London Supports The Shoebox Project Once Again!
West London Hockey Association is once again proud to support The Shoebox Project this holiday season. The Shoebox Project is a not-for-profit initiative that collects small gifts and essentials that are packaged in shoe boxes and delivers them to homeless woman living in shelters. Last year our West London Hawkey families collected hundreds and hundreds of boxes which was absolutely amazing! Lets try and beat our own record this year!

Homelessness is a real issue right here is London. The London chapter will be delivering shoe boxes to My Sisters Place this holiday season. My Sisters Place provides emergency and transitional shelter and services to women who are homeless because they are fleeing an abusive situation, are afflicted with mental illness or are simply poor. A Shoebox gift is a powerful reminder for a woman that she has not been forgotten and that she remains a valued and respected member of her community. This is a great opportunity for the children and families of West London Hockey to “Give Back”. It is a great opportunity to teach our children how important a simple act of kindness is.  This is a great opportunity to Pay it Forward. 

Here's how it works for us:

We would like to invite and challenge each and every West London team to get involved and work together to put shoe boxes together filled to the brim. Deadline to submit your shoe boxes is no later than SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16. We will advise as to where to drop your boxes shortly.
This can be a team/family event!

The team with the most shoe boxes will win $300 towards a Palasad team party!

Take pictures of your team with all of their shoe boxes and send your pics to [email protected] so we can post them on our website!
