Frequently Asked Questions
When can I donate my shoes?
The drop boxes go into place on April 1, 2021. The boxes in Salmon Arm will be at RBC on Alexander Street downtown. You can also drop off at In View Optical (next to Bootlegger) at the Mall at Piccadilly and at the Okanagan College Campus (main office). Donations are also taken at Kathryn's office - Brooke Downs Vennard LLP - now at Harbourfront Drive beside the CSRD.
SASCU in Sorrento and SASCU in Sicamous are both being very kind to allow us to place a drop box for those of you not in Salmon Arm. The boxes will also be there on April 1.
What if I can’t wait until April 1?
We can arrange to have you drop off prior to April 1. We all know what happens when one gets motivated to clean out the closet – it’s all about OUT! So, contact us by e-mail or call Kathryn at 250-832-8880 and we can assist. We want the donations!
What if I have a friend from out of town who wants to donate?
We have made arrangements each year for a friend of a friend of a friend to pick up in places like Victoria, Edmonton, Calgary and points in between. We even managed a fabulous box of purses from Yellowknife! If you have someone who would like to donate from further away, please let us know. We can reach out and
What does the Shuswap Community Foundation do?
The Community Foundation now manages more than 10 million dollars in endowment (permanent) funds. The individual funds are created for various purposes such as for the benefit of children, music programs, park related ideas, etc. The concept is that the donated funds are held and invested and only the interest each year is paid out to various groups such as for playground equipment, park benches, walking trail improvements, etc. This means the Fund will be there for good works for as long as possible (forever!).
What is the purpose of Rosemarie’s Fund?
Rosemarie’s Fund is all about good things in and around the Shuswap. She was about community and loved this place so whatever projects that come along that the Fund could help, that’s what she would have wanted.
