"Kick Off" to 90-day Shoe Drive Campaign

September 4th from 5:30pm - 8pm

Shoe Drive to Raise Funds, Help the Environment and Support Microenterprise in Developing Nations

 

Did you know?

  • In the U.S. alone, approximately 600 million pairs of shoes are thrown away each year.  The materials used to manufacture shoes are created from chemical compounds, the kind that will create health hazards if left to disintegrate openly or in landfills. 

  • Over 85% of post-consumer shoe waste was disposed of in landfills, not recycled.  This is an unacceptable environmental impact, especially since even non-recyclable footwear can be a vital economic lifeline to individuals and families in financially-devastated countries. 

  • Your gently worn shoes still have life-changing impact left in them.  They can be used in developing nations for impoverished people to start, maintain, and grow a Micro-enterprise.  Because of this opportunity, individuals in countries where there is little hope or economic stability are able to feed, clothe, and house their families.
