Looking for Donations of Gently Used Winter Boots

Check your shoe closets for any winter boots you don’t need.

Connected Core and its partners are holding a winter boot drive and are asking for donations of gently used winter boots. The footwear will be distributed to those experiencing homelessness in Barrie.

The collected boots will be distributed by The Salvation Army, David Busby Centre, the Gilbert Centre and Redwood Park Communities.

Donations are accepted until December 9th. Drop off boxes are located at RVH RAAM clinic (70 Wellington St., Barrie lower level); Barrie Police Services Bell Farm Rd office (60 Bell Farm Rd., Barrie; Mon-Fri 8-4)
