Donating Shoes Provides Opportunities to Those in Need

My brother has a whole closet dedicated to his shoes! Hiking boots, tennis shoes, work boots, sandals, and soccer cleats fill the overflowing collection. He invited me over yesterday to help organize with the goal of donating shoes fresh in his mind. As we dug through the mountain of shoes I began to imagine where all these donated shoes will go. I pictured a homeless man able to feel prepared on his first day of work as he put on a pair of my brother's old work boots. I saw donated shoes on the feet of a young boy whose family could not afford a new pair for his first day of high school. I imagined my brother’s donated shoes going to a boy living in poverty who needed soccer cleats to join the local team. My brother's shoe donation can help give those in need an opportunity to succeed.

By the end of our organizing, we had two full boxes of shoes ready to go to a good cause. It is always good to stop for a second and think about what we can do to help others. I felt so proud of my brother for donating used shoes because those shoes that he barley ever wore could brighten the future for somebody in need! My brother donated, now we urge you to do your part and schedule a donation pickup.
