Thank You Edmonton!
This blog post is a long time over due, but Restored Soles 2011 was a great success. For those not familiar with the project, Room 322 partnered with two local Jamaican organizations JANA & the Honorary Consult of Jamaica in Edmonton to host a sneaker drive for youth in Jamaica.
I am proud to say that we met our goal and raised over 500 pairs of sneakers to send to Jamaica. This wouldn’t be possible without the large amount of volunteers, but more importantly you the supporters! All of your donations will have such a big impact on the youth in Jamaica. If you didn’t have a chance to make it down to the event you missed out on some amazing Jamaican cuisine provided by JANA consisting of Jerk Chicken, Roti, Patties, and assortment of Jamaican pops.
New precedent been set in #YEG. Check out more pictures below!
