Impact Recruitment Launches Corporate Boot Drive in Support of Working Gear

Recruitment agency collects construction gear for local Vancouver non-profit benefiting men returning to the workforce.

Vancouver, BC: Starting today (February 3), Impact Recruitment, a Vancouver-based full-service recruitment agency, is launching a corporate boot drive in support of local non-profit Working Gear Clothing Society.

After volunteering with Working Gear on several occasions in late 2019, Impact Recruitment wanted to do more to help the organization that sees well over 1,000 individuals come through its doors each year in need of industry appropriate clothing and work boots in order to return to full-time employment.

After reflecting on how they could best help, Impact Recruitment’s Building Division felt that, with their extensive working relationships with clients in the construction industry and Working Gear’s consistent need for steel-toed work boots, a boot drive was a natural fit.

The corporate boot and clothing drive will run from February 3 through February 28, 2020. During this time, Impact Recruitment will be available to collect donations in good (safe) working condition, including:

  • Steel-toe boots (biggest need!)
  • Work gloves
  • Rain gear
  • Work pants and shirts
  • Other construction worksite appropriate clothing


The work boots and clothing collected will provide gear for local men and women returning to the workforce who could otherwise not afford these items and, more importantly, provide these individuals with the confidence to show up prepared for their first day of work.

Donations, large and small, from both individuals and corporate organizations are welcome. To participate or find out more about Impact Recruitment’s Corporate Boot Drive in support of Working Gear, contact Mark Fedyshen at mfedyshen@impactrecruitment.ca or 604-689-8687 ext. 248.
