Give your ‘heart and sole’ with shoes

November 27th, 2009 · No Comments

A group of local retailers are setting up a gently used shoe collection drive for Soles4Souls, a non-profit that provides footwear to people in need in more than 125 countries.

During the month of December, you can drop off those shoes you’re not wearing at selected businesses, knowing that a victim of a natural disaster, or a person living in extreme poverty, will put them to good use.

As a special incentive on Dec. 12, all participating locations will provide a 20% discount off a new pair of shoes upon donation.

Locally, you can donate shoes at these locations:

Phinney Ridge
The Sneakery, 612 NW 65th St.

Ballard
re-soul, 5319 Ballard Ave.

Fremont
evo, 122 NW 36th St.
Shoes ‘n Feet, 3409 Stone Way North, Suite 102

Other participating Seattle-area stores are GEMS Sneakershop, ian, RPS-Rock Paper Scissors, Sole Food, Upper Playground, and Zebra Club.

For more information and other locations and donation options, see souls4seattle.com and the national organization at giveshoes.org.
