About Us

Footwear 4 Kids was founded by William Bourgault at 20 years old. He was cleaning out his closet and noticed that he had many pairs of running shoes that he wanted to donate. He then did some research but couldn't find an organization that focused on providing footwear at no-cost to children and youth in need in the City of Ottawa. 

Today, Footwear 4 Kids is a charitable project & social movement that encourages and assists members of our community, shoe stores, and corporate businesses to donate for a child in need of shoes.

In collaboration with our partners & supporters below, your donated pairs are given to children in need in the City of Ottawa. 

Do you have a pair of shoes for a child in need?

We believe that every child deserves a good pair of shoes.

Our vision is to lead the way when it comes to shoes for children in need, and that one day every child that needs a pair of shoes can get a good pair.
