Volunteers ready to put a little shine in your step
Published on July 19 2013
Kelly Butson has her shoe-shining technique down pat.
With a chalkboard eraser-sized shoe shine sponge in hand, the Shinerama co-rodinator for Brock University Students’ Union (BUSU) can transform a pair of scuffed kicks into flashy footwear in a few seconds flat.
Butson is willing to prove it to as many people as possible next week during the Shinerama Shoe Shine Bonanza on July 24 and 25. For $50, faculty and staff can get their shoes shined by a Shinerama volunteer and get a photo taken in their gleaming footwear, all the while supporting Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
Butson’s even willing to shine an entire shoe collection, should someone feel their closet full of loafers, lace-ups or pumps needs some TLC.
