Project Shoebox Oxford

Welcome to our website!

Project Shoebox Oxford is a community giving project, started in the autumn of 2014.  We collect unused and unwanted toiletries and non-perishable foods and pack them as gift boxes / food hampers for women and their families who are in Oxfordshire domestic abuse refuges, homeless shelters, or who are refugees. It aims to recognise them as normal people, not victims or problems that need to be solved.


Project Shoebox started in 2012 to help women in domestic violence refuges in Bromley and has since spread across the UK.  It is run locally in Oxfordshire by volunteers, and is overseen and regulated by Bromley Women’s Aid, a Registered Charity No. 1068007.
