Get Involved

Whether you’re an individual looking to jump right into our mission or a Corporate Community Relations professional looking for a new service project for the executive team, we’ve got lots of ways to get involved. We are bringing to Canada many ways you can make a difference with Samaritan’s Feet!

Host a Shoe Drive

Considering a shoe drive to give back and help children across Canada or the world? Then look no further! A shoe drive is the greatest way to help Samaritan’s Feet carry out that mission! While we accept all styles of footwear, particularly NEW SNEAKERS. Sneakers are the most durable type of footwear and provide the greatest mobility and protection to both children and adults where walking is the primary mode of transportation.

Host a Shoe Distribution

Shoes of Hope is Samaritan’s Feet overarching shoe distribution initiative in the United States, around the world and soon to be in Canada. Shoes of Hope distributions are generally one-day events where our volunteers and staff welcome participants, share Samaritan’s Feet story of hope, wash their feet, and provide them with a new pair of socks and shoes.


We can’t reach our goal of creating a world with zero shoeless children without our volunteers. Whether it’s preparing shoes to be shipped around the world or serving children one-on-one across the United States, each of our volunteers plays a special role here at Samaritan’s Feet.

Corporate Partners

Samaritan’s Feet offers a variety of ways for your organization to work together to positively impact your community! Whether it’s hosting a shoe drive in your office or volunteering at a shoe distribution. We also welcome our partners to contribute to our work financially, as well as with donations of time, products, and professional skills. Doing good engages teams at all levels and providing a unique team-building process.

Athletic Programs

Samaritan’s Feet has experience in partnering with coaches and athletes at the academic, amateur and professional levels to make a difference locally and around the world. Our signature Barefoot Coaching program has enrolled over 3,000 coaches to help collect shoes and raise funds for mobilization and operations.

Support a Special Event

We’ve learned that special events are great opportunities to spread the word of Samaritan’s Feet and enroll support from community, corporate and municipal leaders. They are also great to raise funds, and resources for the cause.
