Soles4Souls: Donate Your Old Shoes, Apr. 23-27, at the Family Y

Got gently worn or outgrown shoes? Donate them and make a difference! Your used shoes can change a person’s life and lighten a landfill.
In support of the nonprofit charity Soles4Souls, the Family Y will serve as a collection point for the Staples High School Soles4Souls Club, which will be collecting used shoes from April 23 through April 27. The shoes will be donated to those in need due to extreme poverty and natural disasters in the United States and around the world.
Any used shoes of any kind as well as $1/per pair of shoes donated to cover shipping expenses will be happily accepted and much appreciated.
Find the collection box in our lobby, starting Apr. 23.
