Soles 4 Souls Canada – 40,000 Pairs of Shoes Collected for Distribution to Haiti

One of our really good customers – Roy’s Shoes of Kelowna put together a campaign with a goal to collect
25,000 pairs of shoes in 25 days (February 24th to Saturday March 20th) which would be donated to local
Okanagan social agencies as well as to Haiti through Soles4Souls Canada.

The surrounding community cleaned out their closets and met Jim Belshaw’s target. KEEN donated over 1,000
pairs of lightly used as well as last season’s overstock.

Not only did it help out those in need, but it was a green thing to do. There are tons of discarded footwear in the
landfills that when broken down over time can leak toxins into our water supply and atmosphere.
