Shaping a better world

Ardene Has Donated $1 Million in Footwear

Ardene Has Donated $1 Million in Footwear

Starting in March, we launched a campaign to support our community of healthcare workers on the front-line fighting COVID-19 by donating pairs of comfortable socks and shoes to hospitals, medical centers and screening centers across Canada. Thanks to your support and donation requests, we’ve been able to donate more than $1 million in footwear across the country!  

Doing Our Part  

Since the start of our campaign, we have donated 100,000 pairs of footwear to support 350 hospitals and 600 independent healthcare teams in 9 provinces across Canada. The outpouring of videos, social posts and emails of gratitude we have received from front-line workers has been heartwarming, and we are grateful we were able to do our part. Frequent attire changes, including shoes and socks, have played a role in reducing contamination, and new, comfortable footwear has come as a relief to teams during long shifts.   

Thank You to Our Community  

The community outreach during this campaign has been amazing! We want to thank everyone who requested a donation to help support this initiative, as well as all the Ardene employees who worked overtime to process all the requests, including many who hand-delivered boxes in the Montreal area as part of an ongoing volunteer program. You have helped make a positive impact across the country, and we couldn’t have done it without you.   

For over 35 years, Ardene has always been an avid supporter of local and international community initiatives. To date, the Ardene Foundation has donated over $4 million to various charities including WE Well-being, Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada and Soles4Souls. The Ardene Foundation accepts general requests year-round at donations@ardene.com, and we are very proud to have been able to help support our front-line heroes. Thank you for everything you are doing to keep us safe.
