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.

That week will also feature a Women Who Inspire Us poster exhibition (March 4-8) on the concourse, a women’s self-defence workshop (March 5, 2:30-4:30 p.m., room 1616), and a workshop on human trafficking and the sex industry (March 7, 9:30-11:30 a.m., room 3343). All events are free and open to the public.
