  News Updates

April 2014
- The 2013 shoes have arrived in Rwanda! With over 72,000 refugees living in Rwanda, the UNHCR is very appreciative of the support of Sole Responsibility and those who generously donated their gently used shoes and a toonie for shipping.
- The 2014 collections are getting underway! Expect to see collection boxes at Bridgehead locations starting May 5th. Plus we’ll be at the Ottawa Race Weekend registration again, as per tradition!
- After 8 years of hauling and sorting shoes at their warehouse, Bridgehead staff can relax this year as shoes will be handled by Dymon Storage. Local charities can collect the shoes they need from Dymon Storage and the 2014 shipment overseas to a UNHCR refugee camp will be sorted and packed at Dymon Storage as well. A HUGE THANK YOU to Bridgehead staff for their enthusiasm and assistance in working with Sole Responsibility!!!!
- Sole Responsibility is winding down and consolidating operations with our sister charity Soles4Souls. It makes good sense since we both share the goal of providing shoes to those in need. Check out their website for further information at www.soles4soulscanada.com
- We salute The Ottawa Triathlon Club for their financial support over the past 4 years. The generous donation of their annual registration fees enabled Sole Responsibility to pay for the overseas shipments to refugee camps. So many have benefitted from the The Ottawa Triathlon Club’s involvement with our charity!!

 

Winter 2013
- Abitibi in Northern Quebec is collecting shoes for us this year!
- The Cataraqui Conservation Authority in the Kingston is helping recruit collectors in their region.
- Soles4Souls will again be contributing shoes from their collections this Spring to top up our shipment.
- Sole Responsibility is now an official charity! Financial donors can now receive a tax receipt for their contribution!
