You’ve gone through so many pairs of running shoes that the pair demoted to walking around and the pair demoted from walking around to cutting the lawn are both in good shape, but you still have a heap in the closet.
Now is the time to get rid of a few pairs! If you are in the Ottawa area, Sole Responsibility’s annual shoe drive continues until Sunday, June 12!
Since they started collecting shoes six years ago, Sole Responsibility has distributed more than 21,000 pairs of shoes to the needy in Ottawa and around the world. With your help, they can reach this year’s goal of 4,000 pairs.
Anyone having shoes to donate can drop them off at any Bridgehead in the city, Mountain Equipment Co-Op or Bushtukah store. They also ask that you donate a twoonie to help cover the cost of shipping the shoes to this year’s recipient nation – Kenya.
