Eva’s and Martk’d are partnering to launch #InYourShoes, a sneaker and sportswear drive to get 1000 items to support homeless youth in Toronto.
Homeless youth are in serious need of recreational wear. Without things like a decent set of gym clothes, clean running shoes, ice skates, and swimwear, they can’t access recreational and fitness activities that many other youth get to participate in. During wintertime, a change of shoes becomes even more important.
You can break these barriers to sport, fitness, and a healthier lifestyle! Contribute to the In Your Shoes Drive by donating a new/gently used sportswear items like:
- Sneakers and runners
- Flipflops and slippers
- Sports Jackets
- Ice Skates
Your donation will go directly to youth residents at Eva’s shelters/transitional housing and will make all the difference to a young person experiencing homelessness who wants to get active. Make your donation by:
- dropping it off at Eva’s Administrative Office (425 Adelaide Street West, Suite 402), Monday to Friday between 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM, or
- following @evasinitiatives on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and using the hashtag #InYourShoes. Tell us you want to give and we’ll get in touch.
Please share with your networks! Let’s reach our goal of 1000 items!
MARTK’D is a community movement that creates, develops and hosts a wide range of events, programs, and initiatives celebrating art on sneakers as a way to connect with communities and cultures.
