Shoe sale for a good cause

Douglas College is asking the community to walk a mile in a women’s shoes for the second time.

In honour of International Women’s Day, the New Westminster campus will be the site of a sale of gently used footwear on Friday, March 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Shoes start at $2 a pair with the proceeds going toward bursaries to support women in their studies at Douglas College while leftover shoes will be donated to a local women’s shelter.

Those wanting to donate shoes to the sale can drop them off at room 2850 by March 7.
