Spread Kindness by Participating in
Stan’s “Share-A-Pair” Shoe and Sock Drive
February 1 – 29, 2020
Imagine trying to get through winter without a good pair of shoes on your feet. This is the harsh reality for Milwaukee’s homeless or less fortunate.
Now you can spread kindness and help those less fortunate by simply clearing out your closet and dropping off your new or gently used shoes, sneakers and boots for men, women, and kids as well as new socks at Stan’s Fit For Your Feet annual “Share-A-Pair”drive from Saturday, February 1 through Saturday, February 29.
Items can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00pm p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at any of the “Share-A-Pair” collection bins at Stan’s in Brookfield at The Plaza at 17155 W. Bluemound Road; Stan’s in Glendale across from BayShore Town Center at 505 W. Silver Spring Drive; Stan’s in Greenfield in the Layton Plaza at 7405 W. Layton Avenue; New Balance Milwaukee store in Brookfield at 17155 W. Bluemound Road, Suite A; or New Balance Milwaukee in Greenfield at 7411 W. Layton Ave.
This year the donated shoes, sneakers, boots and socks for men, women, and kids will be distributed locally to the Sojourner Family Peace Center, Hope House of Milwaukee, Milwaukee Rescue Mission, Repairers of the Breach 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 distributes shoes to impoverished people in over 125 countries around the world.
Anyone donating gently used or new shoes, sneakers or boots or new socks to the “Share-A-Pair” drive will also receive $10 off their next regular price men’s and women’s shoe purchase valid through the end of February at any Stan’s Fit For Your Feet or New Balance Milwaukee location.
“As Stan’s celebrates its 70th anniversary of serving Greater Milwaukee, we are proud to be able to continue to help those less fortunate in our community through our annual shoe and sock drive,” said Jim Sajdak, owner of Stan’s Fit For Your Feet.
“Our goal this year is to collect 25,000 pairs this year of shoes and as many pairs of socks as possible,” said Sajdak. “Because we truly believe no one should have to endure Wisconsin’s cold winters without a good pair of shoes on their feet.”
Since its inception, Stan’s Fit For Your Feet’s annual “Share-A-Pair” shoe drive has collected more than 275,000 new and gently-used pairs of shoes from Greater Milwaukee residents. For more information on the “Share-A-Pair” shoe drive, visit www.stansfootwear.com or call 262-432-4030.
