As a part of Soles4Souls’ expansion efforts in Canada, we recently distributed close to 150 pairs of new shoes in Montreal! Here at Soles4Souls we work with over 1,200 non-profit organizations all over the world to help serve those in need and create opportunities. This specific distribution took place at Mile End Community Mission.
Mile End Community Mission seeks to create a safe and welcoming community which meets the practical, emotional and spiritual needs of those who need it most in the Mile End area. The Canadian non-profit partnered with Soles4Souls to provide new shoes to its clients.
Soles4Souls has established a Canadian Board of Directors and is currently working towards establishing non-profit status in Canada.
“With our rapid growth in North America over the last few years, the development of a Canadian Board was a natural addition to our leadership team,” said Buddy Teaster, President and CEO of Soles4Souls. “We are preparing to open a warehouse in the Toronto area, and are thrilled to continue expanding Soles4Souls’ presence in Canada.”
At the recent Montreal distribution, volunteers from Canadian retailers Ardene and Aldo Group came together to help serve those in need.
“While Soles4Souls’ impact is global, we also witness the mission first-hand right here in our own backyard,” said an Ardene Foundation and Soles4Souls board member. “For those struggling to have their basic needs met, a new pair of shoes can mean so much.”
Thank you to Ardene and Aldo Group for donating your time and effort to help give back to those in need!
