Shoeboxes of Joy


The Mirrormont Community Association is excited to once again participate in the annual Shoeboxes of Joy program! Sponsored by Catholic Community Services of Western Washington, Volunteer Services delivers shoebox gift packages to elderly and disabled members of our community who may be isolated from family and friends during the holiday season. By giving a few hours of your time to create Shoeboxes of Joy filled with treats, you give a gift of caring and holiday cheer. Many of those receiving the gift boxes live alone with no family or friends nearby and may not receive any other gift. Having a volunteer come to their door to make that special delivery means the world to the recipient.

How can you help? There are four ways:

1. Donate your shoeboxes with lids to the cause! Pre-wrapped boxes get extra points ;) If you want to pre-wrap a box, here is a video lesson https://youtu.be/LQuyvhUAT_k. See drop off information in #3.

2. Use our SignUp Genius site https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0F4BADAF2EA6FCCF8-2021 to sign up for the item(s) you wish to purchase.

3. Drop off your items at the Mirrormont Country Club (25500 SE Mirrormont Dr.) between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, NOVEMBER 10 through FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021. There will be a designated tote there for your donations, which will be picked up daily and securely stored until the event. You can also bring your items to the stuffing and wrapping party on the 20th.

4. You can join us for a festive Shoebox Stuffing and Wrapping party being held at the Mirrormont Country Club on SATURDAY, November 20th from 3pm – 6 pm. This is a great opportunity for Middle and High School youth to get in their service hours!

***Please let us know if you plan to attend by RSVPing on the SignUp Genius site! MCA representatives will deliver the filled shoeboxes to CCSWW shortly after the party.

PLEASE NOTE: Catholic Community Services is serving as a portal for human service outreach and shoebox distribution; there is no religious affiliation related to this charitable endeavor. For more information about the program, email Alysia Pardee (alysiapardee@gmail.com).
