Mayors, Media and More!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and are ready for a great week!

soles4souls shoes donated by highschoolWe had a pretty exciting day last Wednesday at our Carling location. Mayor Jim Watson and the Prime Minister’s wife Laureen Harper were at our Carling location that day to proclaim the month of June as Soles4Souls month!

We had a huge turnout at the event and it was a lot of fun. The location was jammed with people from other charities and supporters in the community. We also had plenty of kids from a local high school drop by to donate! The event also attracted a lot of media attention. We had CTV, CBC, EMC and the Ottawa Citizen show up to cover the event. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and it was great exposure for this fantastic cause. Before the speeches, there was plenty of food and drinks to go around, and more people showed up afterwards to donate more shoes!

If you have any lightly used shoes you don’t need anymore, be sure to drop by any one of our seven convenient locations to drop them off. As of now, Dymon has help collect over 30,000 pairs of shoes. That is just a fifth of our 150,000 pair goal for this year, so drop by one of location and donate to this fantastic cause!
