Shoe Donation Program
Help us give back.
Join our shoe donation in Vancouver. Donate your old, worn out shoes and we’ll take care of the rest! We’ll pick them up, clean them up and make sure they get put to good use.
Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.
H. Jackson Brown Jr.
One person’s trash
is another person’s treasure.
We’ll clean up your shoes and get them ready for a second life. We work with charities and non-profit organizations to redistribute shoes to those in need in our local communities as well as other countries.
Shoes are more than just a fashion accessory, they are an essential to every day life. People’s health and access to opportunity are greatly aided by their footwear.
We strive to raise awareness for the importance of shoe donation and work to reduce waste while helping those in need from children and youth to the homeless.
At Shoewash, we believe in giving back to the community and helping others. Our shoe donation program in Vancouver is our commitment to improving the day to day lives of others.
The Footprints of Kindness
When you donate your old shoes, you can make the world of a difference to someone in need.
Approximately 300 million individuals worldwide cannot afford shoes, making it tougher for them to acquire an education.
Without proper footwear, there is a higher multitude of risks including burns and damage as well as contracting a sickness or fungus. Additionally, children and youth who are not wearing shoes pose a higher risk of contracting severe illnesses from dirty soil. Become a part of the Sole Movement and make a difference today – locally and globally.
