Some things to consider when donating shoes:

Types of Shoes

We accept new or like new shoes of most any type and size, for any type of weather. This includes athletic shoes, sandals, school shoes, boots, dress shoes, work shoes, etc. The need for athletic shoes is the greatest, but we will always take almost any type of shoe. Please NO high-heeled women’s shoes or boots. We do not accept them because they are not stable on uneven or soft ground.

Quality, not Quantity!

Your new and like new shoes of any kind are going to people who may have never owned a pair before. It is important that these shoes are in good condition to respect the dignity of those receiving them. Also, donations of higher quality shoes are needed; rather than buy a cheap pair of shoes, consider making a cash donation as that money goes to shipping and distribution of the shoes to their destination.

We do not recycle, refurbish, or repair your donated shoes!
