ONLINE ORDERING IS NOW CLOSED
Online material ordering for 2023 has closed, but we are still taking phone orders from certain Western Canadian regions (SK/AB/BC). If you live in a major center in one of these regions you may still be able to place an order by phone, until Friday November 3rd so feel free to call us at 1-800-303-1269 (between Monday and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. mountain time) or send us an email.Your physical address will determine how soon a courier can deliver the materials. Based on your location, we may suggest alternatives for you, since we ship everything out of our Calgary headquarters.
Think outside the box! Other ideas to get materials faster:
- Rather than ordering and waiting for shoeboxes to arrive, visit a local mall or shoe store and ask for their surplus empty shoeboxes. It's faster, easier and good for the environment!
- Consider shopping at a local store and buying sturdy, clear, plastic storage containers for filling. This type of sturdy box can be used for years by the child and their family.
- If you only need resources like boy/girl labels or coloring sheets, you can download them right now from our resources page. Print at home or at your local library/school.
It's never too late to pack shoeboxes online
Running out of time, but still want to participate? Don't forget that you can pack shoeboxes all year-round, on our PackaBox.ca website.
