We will be holding a Shoe Drive with Good In The ‘Hood during our March Monthly Meeting on March 19th. Please see the details below, and make sure to bring donations with you to the meeting if you can.
Shoe drives have a positive effect on all those who are unable to afford quality footwear. In addition, every new or gently used pair of shoes enables us to provide essential groceries for at least 1 more person for up to 7 days. Working together to feed the community, one sole at a time is a great way to make a meaningful impact for our Twin Cities community.
ONE PAIR OF GREAT SHOES CAN PROVIDE 7 DAYS OF GROCERIES TO A PERSON IN NEED
ONE PAIR OF GOOD SHOES CAN PROVIDE 1.5 DAYS OF GROCERIES TO A PERSON IN NEED
Simply collect new or gently used footwear including dress shoes, sneakers, casual shoes, and boots, etc. Tie or band them together and place in a plastic bag to keep them dry.
- Very gently used.
- No tears or holes.
- Minor scuffing that can be polished.
- Light wear and tear on the bottom.
You can also host a shoe drive by asking your friends or colleagues to donate shoes. You can make it a party at home or a contest in your office.www.goodinthehood.org
