We are thrilled to announce our upcoming Summer Shoe Drive from July 15th to August 31st, 2023. With a goal of collecting 10,000 pairs of shoes, we aim to create lasting change while promoting sustainability, recycling, and the spirit of giving back.
As the summer season approaches, we recognize the crucial need for shoes among individuals and families facing economic hardships. Many individuals lack access to proper footwear, which can have a significant impact on their overall well-being and opportunities. By organizing this shoe drive, we aim to address this issue and provide support to those in need.
“We are excited to launch our Summer Shoe Drive and encourage the community to come together to make a real difference,” says Gerald Bobga Fonkenun, founder of The Shoe Aid Project. “Our mission is not only to collect donations but also to promote sustainability and recycling. Through this initiative, we aim to engage the community, foster a sense of giving back, and inspire compassion.”
Donating is easy and everyone can get involved! The Shoe Aid Project welcomes shoe contributions of any size, style, or condition. Whether you have outgrown shoes, gently worn pairs, or even new ones, every donation will play a vital role in transforming lives. We encourage donors to drop off their shoe contributions at the designated collection points throughout the city, which you can find here.
In addition to the positive impact on individuals and families, the Summer Shoe Drive aligns with our commitment to sustainability and recycling. By repurposing shoes and reducing waste, we aim to minimize the environmental impact associated with discarded footwear.
We urge local businesses, organizations, and individuals to get involved and help us reach our ambitious target of 10,000 pairs of shoes. Together, we can create a community that cares, supports, and uplifts one another.
