Lifeline Shoebox was started by Wanda S. Reid in 2008 in an effort to provide a solution to the local nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Forsyth County, NC. For over 40 years the residents have received only $30 per month which is not enough for most people to be able to purchase their own personal needs items. So to help Lifeline Shoebox was created to provide a gift of 15 items to help make the residents' lives easier.
How It Works
1. COLLECT: We collect personal care items from people, businesses, schools, churches and organizations
2. ORGANIZE: We check, organize and inventory the items
3. PACK: We wrap and pack the boxes with the personal care items
4. DELIVER: We hand deliver the gifts to local nursing homes and assisted living facilities
We believe you judge a society by how we treat
all citizens irrespective of class, age or disability.
