New Statewide Service Project
ShoeBox Recycling will be our new state-wide service project. So, you will be able to bring your gently worn, unwanted shoes to any state-wide event and help those less fortunate all year long!
ShoeBox Recycling partners with sports teams and organizations, K-12 schools, colleges, universities, non-profits, and retailers to collect shoes which will be distributed for reuse as a shoe for someone, somewhere who needs affordable shoes.
The program seeks to raise awareness and understanding that 'worn' does not mean 'worn out' and that reuse of shoes serves a global need. The goal of ShoeBox Recycling is to put an end to shoes going to landfills through increasing education that worn is not worn out. All shoes can typically have another life on someone else's feet throughout the globe.
All paired men's, women's and kids shoes that are still usable. That means no holes in the soles and no wet or mildewed pairs. This includes athletic shoes, dress shoes, timberland type work boots, sandals, heels, flats.
