"All of the shoes that we collect in the Vancouver region will be sent to Evolution Fulfillment, sorted and then disseminated as needed," said Sue Ross of Shoe Bank Canada. "They are our new Lower Mainland partners. Their values align with our values. It's very important for them to give back to their communities, so it is a perfect paring."

Shoe Bank Canada hosts shoe drives each spring and fall, reaching out to businesses and organizations to collect shoes and make a difference in their communities.

During the past five years, Shoe Bank Canada has collected and distributed tens of thousands of pairs of shoes throughout Canada, reaching individuals in need of work shoes, winter boots, and other comfortable and reliable footwear.

Evolution Fulfillment is a third party logistics provider that offers order fulfillment distribution for brands that target the North American customer.

"With our specialty in fashion and shoes we just thought it was a great fit for us because we deal with a lot of shoe brands and we thought it would be a great fit because we are inspired by the work they do and helping to change lives," said president Ben Martin.

Evolution Fulfillment also has its own charitable foundation.
