Shoe Bank Canada is in urgent need of shoe donations. In the last few months Shoe Bank Canada has put over 4,000 pairs of shoes on those locally that need assistance. (50 per cent men, 30 per cent women, and 20 per cent children). Currently we are turning away dozens of men each week because we don’t have any larger sized footwear.
In particular we need men’s runners, sandals, and work boots all in the sizes 10 and up. Many of the men we’re turning away have jobs but can’t start because they need safety boots, and many of these men are struggling with finding adequate footwear these larger sizes.
We’d like to ask the media to help us spread the word to the public asking everyone to check your closets and bring all these special request footwear to Roy’s Shoes at 1627 Ellis. St.
Please let Roy’s staff know when dropping off that you have these special request footwear.
Roy’s Shoes is open Tuesday to Saturday.
