 Shoes for Schools Campaign
- Scotiabank runs with shoes for schools -
Many families in our communities struggle to have the proper equipment for their children to participate in physical activities during school. Thanks to Scotiabank, the problem is being solved one step at a time!
Scotiabank once again stepped up and held another fundraiser to provide shoes for students in area schools. Through the generous support of their clients they successfully raised $7,500 for the Shoes for Schools campaign.
$20 Walmart gift cards are being distributed throughout selected schools which will allow the children to receive sneakers for their active lifestyles.
Not only is this campaign giving them a helping hand in receiving a new pair of shoes, but they are teaching them that exercise and healthy living are very important in living a long happy life.
