DONATE YOUR SOLES
The public is invited to participate in a shoe collection drive to raise funds for local charities. Donations of gently worn used and new shoes will be accepted. The amount of money raised is determined by the number of shoes collected.
All donated shoes will be redistributed to microenterprise partners through Funds2Orgs, a for profit social enterprise, and used in developing nations for impoverished people to start their own businesses.
