The Shoe Bank of Canada
The club started working with the Shoe Bank in 2013. We started by holding a fall shoe drive and was able to maintain a permanent shoe collection location inside the Perth Giant Tiger. By mid 2017, we passed 2,700 pairs of footwear collected and in July 2017, we now have a second shoe collection location inside the Giant Tiger in Smiths Falls.
The Shoe Bank of Canada’s mission is to ensure that no Canadian goes without proper footwear.
