The Two/Ten Foundation of Canada will hand over another truckload of new shoes and boots to the Salvation Army on Tuesday, June 10th. at 11.00 AM at the Granite Ridge Golf Course in Milton prior to their fund raising Golf Event.

Two/Ten is a unique industry charity comprised of volunteers from the footwear industry. Each year Two/Ten donates over 40,000 pairs of new footwear to needy families from coast to coast in Canada.

Two/Ten works with over 50 front line charities such as the Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul, Women shelters, Street Connection, Aboriginal Service, YMCA assistance programs to distribute donated new shoes to those with the most urgent needs.

The Foundation also has provided over 400 bursaries to help students attend university, and special financial aid to industry people stricken with serious illness or accident.

Two/Ten also provides a scholarship for a talented young Canadian to study footwear design at the highest level in Italy each year.

Few industries in Canada can boast their own charity where all the companies and associates come together with the common cause of doing good works.
