Ron White Kicks Off 2014 with Canada’s Largest Shoe Drive

Opening an exciting year, The Ron White Foundation launches the 18th year of Canada’s largest shoe drive with the generous support of celebrity friends including Rachel McAdams, David Spade, Sarah McLachlan, Celine Dion, Matt Damon, Kevin Spacey, Hilary Duff, Jeanne Beker, Laureen Harper among others. Beginning today, Ron White invites the city of Toronto to follow in the footsteps of their favourite celebrity and donate their gently worn shoes and boots at any Ron White retail location in the GTA.

“After the holidays we all have things in our closet that could go. With these unusually frigid temperatures, the need for warm footwear is greater than ever. Bring down your shoes and boots to any Ron White location and we’ll get them out to some great GTA organizations who are helping those in need,” said CEO and Creative Director, Ron White.

Adding to the over 30,000 pairs already collected through Canada’s largest shoe drive, all donations of gently worn men’s, women’s and kid’s winter footwear are welcome and will be collected through Sunday, February 9th at all Ron White stores. Shoes and boots are sorted and cleaned before being distributed to this year’s charity partners: Dress for Success, Streethealth, Halton Women’s Place, New Circles and Ve'ahavta.

As a thank you, Ron White is sharing the love with donors, offering a $25 credit towards a future purchase at Ron White Shoes.
