Our first recipient in the Community Leadership category is the lead coordinator for the Montreal division of “The Shoebox Project”. Every year, she and her team collect and distribute gifts boxes containing necessities and luxuries such as shampoo, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste as well as make up, jewelry and other essentials to over 1900 women residing in Montreal women’s shelters. She goes above and beyond her role as coordinator, giving up her own personal space to package and deliver these gifts, helping these women feel less alone during the holidays. Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for Katherine Velan.
