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
  • Shoelaces
  • T-Shirts
  • Hoodies
  • Sweatshirts
  • Sweatpants
  • Socks
  • Sports Jackets
  • Towels
  • Belts
  • Bags
  • Ice Skates
  • Swimsuits

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!
