first brought to our attention, clients and staff put together several shoebox donations. Each shoebox is filled with little luxuries, like hand cream, body spray or soaps, that a woman would enjoy, but cannot afford in difficult times. After collection is finished the boxes are delivered to women in shelters here in Calgary.
While dropping off our beautifully wrapped shoeboxes, we came to know through speaking with Marketing Manager Michael Tandara that Dream Development has donated their time and office space in order to serve as a collection point for the Shoebox Project.
Since 1997, Dream Development has been successful in developing a number of west side communities in Calgary, for Calgarians. Their team works in partnership with consultants, engineers, planners, and architects, bringing together an array of skills to identify the best solutions to build great communities.
CIES extends a thank you to our clients and staff who put together 27 shoeboxes, to the Shoebox Project for heading up such a wonderful holiday season initiative, and to Dream Development for volunteering their time and offices to be the Calgary collection point for the project. Such a combined effort shows we can truly make difference when people in the community come together to help those in need. For more photos CLICK HERE.
