Back to School Shoe Event

August 27, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Back to School Shoe Event – August 27th at 5 pm

McDougall United Church, 8516 – Athabasca St SE

Collecting shoes for children

Giving local kids & their families a hand up

There are steep costs associated with preparing a child for school.

Unfortunately for some families, right here in our community of Acadia, affording back-to-school essentials like shoes, socks and underwear is not possible.  Some wonderful members of our community have organized an all-summer-long fundraiser to give local kids and their families a hand up.  The goal is to collect gift cards and back to school essentials for a minimum of 40 children to make sure they all have what they need when they start the schoolyear.

At this event, children will receive a free haircut, shoes and other items for back to school.  Aiming to help families with 25 gift cards towards shoes.

How can you help?
