8th Annual Shoebox Project

March 1 - April 29, 2022


Everyday essentials such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste and other personal care may be easy to access by most but challenging to others. Give hope today by participating in the Shoebox Project and helping us provide more than 9,700 boxes to distribute to individuals through our Safety Net Impact Partners!


Donate a Box


Make the path ahead a little brighter for someone else. Decorate shoeboxes with family, friends or coworkers. Fill them with hygiene items. Please make sure your box(es) can be opened for safety inspections. You can also donate items and we will fill a box for you.

Drop-off completed boxes at The Ettling Center for Civic Leadership and Sustainability @ 4301 Broadway, San Antonio TX, 78209. Our office is located in AD Building #158. 

Each donated shoebox will earn 4 hours of community service. When submitting your impact, please upload a picture of your donated shoebox.
