Project Shoe Box

Project Shoe Box is a non-profit founded in 2012 with the goal of providing a care package to children entering foster care in Southeastern Wisconsin. They strive to provide a care package to every child being placed into foster care, due to unsafe living conditions such as abuse and neglect.

Project Shoe Box gives children in foster care the opportunity to obtain items that they can call their own. Magazines donated will be added to the care packages given to children and teens entering out of home care.
