Our Share-A-Pair Shoe Drive is Back!
Spreading kindness and helping those less fortunate has never been easier. Please consider clearing the clutter out of your family’s closets and dropping off your new or gently used shoes and new socks at our 12th annual “Share-A-Pair” shoe and sock drive from Wednesday, February 1 through Tuesday, February 28.
We’re accepting new or gently used shoes and new socks Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at any of our “Share-A-Pair” collection bins at our Brookfield store in The Plaza at 17155 W. Bluemound Road; our Glendale store across from Bay Shore Town Center at 505 W. Silver Spring Drive; our Greenfield store in the Layton Plaza at 7405 W. Layton Avenue; and our New Balance Milwaukee store in Brookfield store at 17155 W. Bluemound Road, Suite A; and New Balance Milwaukee store in Greenfield at 7411 W. Layton Ave.
This year’s donated shoes and socks will be distributed locally to Milwaukee Rescue Mission, Repairers of the Breach, a homeless day shelter in Milwaukee, and Father Gene’s HELP Center in West Allis. The remainder of the shoes will be given to Soles4Souls, a global not-for-profit organization that will distribute the shoes to hurricane victims in Puerto Rico and Houston and well as to other people in need around the world. Soles4Souls also works with qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities around the world.
As a way of saying thank you for your donation, anyone donating gently used or new shoes or new socks to the “Share-A-Pair” drive will also receive a coupon for $10 off regular price men’s and women’s shoes OR $5 off regular prices kid’s shoes valid through the end of February.
Our goal this year is to collect 25,000 pairs of shoes and as many pairs of socks as possible so we really need everyone in Milwaukee to once again embrace this drive. Since we started this drive we’ve collected more than 235,000 new and gently-used pairs of shoes from big hearted residents of Greater Milwaukee. We’re grateful to call Milwaukee home.
