Big Shoes -  Little Feet Program

Recently Big Brothers and Sisters Okanagan announced a collaboration with Kelowna based Shoe Bank Canada to put shoes on kids and their families through a new program called Big Shoes – Little Feet. This new program’s goal is to provide shoes to kids and their families that need them but can’t afford them.

Shoe Bank Canada will be collecting shoes at this Thursday April 14th Rockets game.

We accept all types of gently used footwear but right now we need children’s footwear - runners, sandals, dress shoes and even winter boots

The only thing that limits our ability to serve more children is funding.

We understand it's hard to donate money when times are tough so we raise as much as we can through our Renew Crew.

We collect and convert your old and unwanted things into dollars we can use to run mentoring programs for children and youth locally in the Okanagan.

Please help us serve even more children in 2015 by donating your used clothing and household items today.
