About Us

The Footwear 4 Kids initiative was founded by William Bourgault at 20 years old. During the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic in 2020, he was cleaning out his closet and noticed that he had a few pairs of 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 a good pair of shoes.

In collaboration with our partners 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.
