Donate Your Shoes to Share Your Soles.
Your gently worn or new shoes of any kind are going to people who may have never even owned a pair. It’s important that any used shoes are in good condition to respect the dignity of those receiving our shoes. So please: be respectful with your donations, understand that our goal is to provide good, clean shoes to those in need. For example, tennis shoes should include laces and not have holes.
Drop locations and processing center information.
As our foundation is expanding, we will be updating our drop site locations. Please check back to see if one is in your area, or if you would like information about becoming a drop site location, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: Please drop off shoes in boxes (do not box them separately – bulk package them). It helps us to quickly and more efficiently process donations. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Also, please limit the number of shoes you bring to the following drop sites to FIVE (5) Pairs.
Cash donations are of great help to pay for the cost of processing and shipping shoes.
We have a purple drop box available 24/7 in the front parking lot where our office is located. If you drop off shoes during business hours, please be sure to stop in our office to say hello and sign in.
Thank you for all your shoes, books and medical equipment donations!
