We are collecting used running shoes for Sole Responsibility again so drop off a pair to any of our locations! If you are donating, we just ask that you make sure they are athletic shoes in fairly good shape and you also donate $2 to the cashbox by our cashes to help cover the cost of shipping all of the shoes. The shoe collection boxes will be in our stores until June 25th and Sole Responsibility will also be collecting shoes during the upcoming Capital Race Weekend.
Last year, through collections at our stores and other locations, Sole Responsibility collected 14,000 pairs of shoes! These were sent to refugees in Yemen.
This year, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has designated a refugee camp in Rwanda as the recipient of this year’s collections.
