BICS students and Moss Hair Studio raising money for Shoebox Project

Bowen Island Community School students Maeve, Sawyer, Makayla and Addison  and teacher Andrea Layzell are teaming up with Kate Hartle of Moss Hair Studio in this year’s shoebox drive for North Shore women’s shelters. 

The Shoebox Project for Women, supported by Dream, collects and distributes gift-filled shoeboxes to women affected by homelessness in communities across Canada and the U.S.

Each thoughtfully created and decorated shoebox is filled with items valued at $50 that can enhance self-esteem and reduce feelings of isolation for women in need.
