WalkJogRun Shoe Drive

WalkJogRun Shoe DriveWalkJogRun has partnered with Share Your Soles
to organize a shoe drive benefiting impoverished people throughout the world. If you are in the area of our office, please donate any gently worn shoes or sneakers. We ask only for gently worn shoes to respect the dignity of those receiving them. For some recipients, it will be their first pair of shoes. We are extremely excited to be organizing this Shoe Drive. We hope to get a ton of donations for Share Your Soles. This is an excellent organization dedicated to bringing shoes to those who do not have them. The founder of Share Your Soles started the organization after visiting Guatemala and seeing children place hot tar on the bottom of their feet in order to participate in a local running race. Can you imagine not having a decent pair of shoes?
As you go through your closet, do you really use all the shoes in there? I know I have at least five pairs of shoes I really don't wear, still in good condition. This is a great way to give back this season. If you're visiting with family and friends around the holidays, ask them to bring donations to the gathering. We would greatly appreciate all of your gently used shoe donations. We are looking for men's, women's, and children's shoes. Kids grow out of shoes so fast, why not donate the old ones to some children who could benefit from them?
Be sure to RSVP to the event on our Facebook page!
