Spring is here and it’s time to clean out your closets. Bag up your gently worn shoes and drop them off at one of Soles 4 Souls many drop-off boxes around town.
Soles 4 Souls Canada is committed to helping people in the midst of extreme poverty and those recovering from natural disasters by giving the gift of shoes. Whether it’s Southeast Asia, New Orleans, Haiti, Africa or as with last year, Japan, the need is enormous.
Since its inception in 2005, Soles 4 Souls has distributed over 13.5 million pairs of shoes and boots to people in need in 127 countries.
Drop-off box collections are starting now and continuing until April 18. Please support this important relief effort and donate at any one of these drop-off boxes located at: Save On Foods, De Vito’s Shoe Repair, Shoes for the Soul, Gaia Rising, Nelson Recreation Centre, Valhalla Pure Outfitters, Streetclothes Named Desire, City Hall, Snowpack and Mark’s Work Wearhouse.
The Nelson Rotary Daybreak club is also one of the sponsors of the Soles 4 Souls local initiative.
