Thank you Nelson for your generosity in supporting Soles 4 Souls shoe drive.

Everyone did a great job of keeping  the pairs together. It really helped.

This town is the best. Your giving the “Gift of Shoes’’means so very much to those who have so little.

Many thanks to the following Nelson business for their year after year support — Rotary Club of Nelson and Nelson Rotary Day Break Club for their increasing involvement. Thank you to all the volunteers and friends of Soles 4 Souls  for their time and devotion to this relief effort.

They include: Chahko Mika Mall; Save On Foods;  Mark’s Work Warehouse; Streetclothes Named Desire;  Vogue Photographic;  Shoes For The Soul; Snowpack;  Gaia Rising; Nelson Husky and an extra heart felt thank you to Vince DeVito Shoes for their large donation of inner soles and shoe laces and support.

Also thanks to the Nelson Star, the IODE and Co-Op Radio.

See you again next year and Thank You All.
