The Cook & The Wife created the #Shoes for Sydney concept in 2015 when realising the struggle that those experiencing homelessness have when it comes to footwear. They teamed up with Sydney charity ‘Rough Threads’ and offered an in store reward to people who donated their good quality footwear. The donated footwear was then handed on to those who need them at Rough Threads events. The Wife then volunteered at the event and helped with fitting shoes on people who had none. It was there that she realised the importance of the #Shoes for Sydney campaign.
During the first week of every month, we encourage you to deliver good quality, clean,unwanted shoes to our Crown Street Boutique where they will be re-allocated to those in need. The next drop off period will be 4th April – 10th April.
