ShuGuy Ministries, based out of Parksville Qualicum Beach, is hoping to receive more shoe donations this year.
Will Chambers, ShuGuy Ministries founder, said the non-profit organization provides shoes for the homeless up and down the Island.
Chambers said at any given time, the organization has between 100 and 150 shoes at every event. He said the organization is now providing shoes for people in shelters.
“It never ceases to amaze me the need — how many people are actually in need, and how much they actually appreciate a pair of shoes,” Chambers previously told The NEWS.
On Monday, Nov. 6, ShuGuy was at the Salvation Army soup kitchen handing out shoes to those in need.
Chambers said ShuGuy provides about 100 pairs of shoes and/or boots per month to the homeless population on Vancouver Island, but the organization is still looking for more donations of gently worn winter or rain footwear.
