By Ottawa Mayoral Declaration!

Hello Everyone!

Soles4Souls-Logo-TransparentAll of us here at Dymon Storage are extremely excited for the month of June. This coming Wednesday June 5th, our Mayor Jim Watson and Laureen Harper (our Prime Minister wife!) will be at our Carling location to proclaim June as Soles4Souls month! For those of you who don’t know, Soles4Souls is an organization that collects gently used footwear to donate too victims of relief in countries around the world.

The organization has been around since 2004, and last year Dymon Storage got involved. All Seven of our locations act as drop –off stations for the shoes. Our employees along with others act as volunteers and help sort the shoes to be shipped around the world. Last year Dymon helped the organization collect over 85,000 pairs of shoes. This year Dymon is aiming high, and we’re hoping to collect over 150,000 pairs of shoes, and it’s looking good so far!

We are very excited to have Mayor Watson and Laureen Harper at this event to get this city excited about helping this great cause! Hopefully this helps us reach (and maybe even surpass!) our goal for this year. We are already well on our way that is for sure! At the end of February we had already collected 35,000 pairs, and I’m sure after looking at the organization room that this number has increased by a lot!

If you have any shoes you can donate, please drop by any one of our seven locations to drop them off. Soles4Souls is a great cause to support, and aids those in need locally and internationally. For more information, visit Soles4SoulsCanada.com
