ShoreRunners helps Salvation Army with shoe and food drive

On Saturday, ShoreRunners will be holding a shoe/food drive and fundraising event in support of The Salvation Army’s Lighthouse Centre

On Saturday, ShoreRunners will be holding a shoe/food drive and fundraising event in support of The Salvation Army’s Lighthouse Centre and Family Services Programs.

“We had such a huge response from the Christmas shoe drive we thought we would try it again,” said ShoreRunners Manager Jayne White. “ShoreRunners is proud to have clients that love to give back to Campbell River and with school just around the corner we hope everyone will have new shoes. We are also taking non-perishable food items to help fill The Salvation Army Food pantry.”

The donated shoes will help those who frequent The Salvation Amy Lighthouse Centre Meal Program and the approximately 400 households accessing their Emergency Family Services programs. Food donations will help re-stock the Salvation Army’s Emergency Food Pantry Program which helps families and individuals in crisis situations.

“Many of the folks who eat at The Lighthouse Centre don’t have transportation and spend a lot of time walking,” said Community Ministries Director Kevin Mack. “Shoes get worn out pretty quick and a good pair of shoes can make a big difference. They will also help out the numerous families that come to us for help, many of whom are on very tight budgets.”

Donated shoes and non-perishable food items can be dropped off at ShoreRunners located at 1371 Greenwood Street from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The Salvation Army will be hosting a hotdog sale from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. with all proceeds going towards their Emergency Food Pantry. ShoreRunners will also be having a number of in-store specials as part of the promotion.

“We are very thankful for businesses like ShoreRunners partnering with us to help the most vulnerable in our community,” said Mack.

“It’s only through the support of the community that allows The Salvation Army to continue to help others.”
