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.

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