The UCW Blitz Collection for gently used running shoes, continues, through the month of October.
Please consider clearing out the back corners of your shoe collection and bring them to SJR.
The shoes are collected for CANADIAN FOOD FOR CHILDREN, a non profit charity, operated by Dr Simone and his wife Joan, of Mississauga.
Don’t be afraid to clean them up a little.
Shoes are desperately needed in parts of the world, that CFFC, ships clothes and non perishable food to.
Donations go to where they are needed most – to over 22 countries around the world, such as, Angola, Colombia, Dominica, El Salvador, Gambia, Ghana, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Madagascar, Malawi, Nicaragua, Peru, Philippines, Sierra Leone, St Lucia, Tanzania, Togo, Zambia.
Containers usually take 4-10 weeks to travel from Mississauga to their destination where Dr Simone arranges for reliable mission workers to meet the containers.
