Donate your shoes at FootZone

You know how you always have a stash of shoes that you don't really wear? But you don't want to throw them away, because that would be wasteful? And you think, you MIGHT still wear them, sometime? Like, for walking the dog or going to the grocery store or maybe as your emergency backup frisbee-throwing shoes?

We are very excited to announce a partnership with Soles4Souls, a non-profit organization that collects 'gently used' footwear and redistributes it among those most in need. They began with a response to the devastating tsunami in southeast Asia in 2004, and have made sizeable donations in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and most recently, the wildfires in California. You can learn more about them at www.soles4souls.org.

Starting immediately, we'll be collecting your 'gently used' footwear and donating our own. Just clean up your shoes and drop them off at the Footzone. When we collect enough to fill a box, we'll send them to Soles4Souls and they will take it from there. For years we've heard from customers who want to give their footwear a better life, and we hope you'll take us up on this great opportunity. We thank you, Soles4Souls thanks you, and your emergency backup frisbee-playing shoes will thank you, too.
