US Embassy Contributes Shoes

For the past two weeks in Ottawa we’ve lived across the street from the American Embassy, wondering about the people who work there. Yesterday we were delighted to meet four respresentatives from the Embassy. They came pushing, dragging and pulling a large yellow mail cart filled with 200 pairs of gently used shoes. They gave us insider tips on restaurants and tourist attractions, plus were just fun to be with.  The shoes will be recycled  and kept out of landfills by being donated to people in need around the world.
