Days Inns Canada Donates Funds to Support Communities Across Canada

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

TORONTO, Oct. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Building on its ongoing commitment to support communities across the country, Days Inns - Canada today announced a $5,000 to Shoe Bank Canada. The donation will go towards an exciting new partnership between Shoe Bank Canada and Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies in British Columbia and Ontario.

“Funding from partners like Days Inns - Canada is essential and helps us help people in need across the country,” said Jim Belshaw, Founder / Co-Chairman of the Board of Shoe Bank Canada “Shoes are something that we don’t always think about. With clean and comfortable footwear, men, women and children have the chance to experience a better quality of life, as well as opportunities.”

To raise awareness for this initiative, Days Inns - Canada organized morning walks during the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts Global Conference in Las Vegas last month. Hotel owners and general managers in attendance were encouraged to participate. “We are proud to assist Shoe Bank Canada in their efforts to offer support for individuals in need of footwear,” said Irwin Prince, President & COO, Days Inns - Canada. “There are various determining factors that influence why people may be in need of proper shoes and it is rewarding to help provide access.”

Shoe Bank Canada is a registered Canadian charity that collects shoes from footwear manufacturers, shoe drives and the homes of Canadians and distributes them to people in need through the help of social agencies across the country. To date, Shoe Bank Canada has been able to give over 50,000 pairs of shoes to low-income families and those in need in communities across the country. Learn more at
