Avi Urban’s Bringing JOI to the World

Our Avi Urban and Homes by Avi team knows the importance of connecting with our community. This season, we’re partnering with JOI Media to bring Christmas to those less fortunate in Calgary and Edmonton.

Unlike other shoebox programs, each gift is distributed directly to local residents who range in age from newborn to senior citizen. The shoeboxes are delivered to charitable organizations like the Mary Dover House, Sheriff King Home, the Mustard Seed and Servants Anonymous, who then ensure their clients receive a special gift in a shoebox.

Shoeboxes are stuffed with essentials like personal hygiene items, cold weather items like cozy socks and mittens, and school supplies. You can also add extra gifts like movie passes, gift cards and toys.

Our team is working hard to build and collect boxes, which will be delivered later this month. Want to get involved? Visit the JOI to the World website to find drop off locations and get the details on this incredible local program.
