Donate your shoes...

This Fall, the Athens-Clarke County Recycling Division is participating in the Soles4Souls shoe campaign. This campaign seeks to provide shoes for those who need them. Did you know that Americans have over 1.5 billion pairs of shoes in their closets? It's time to take the extra pairs and give them to people who will treasure them for years to come. Soles4Souls, the shoe charity, needs our help to make the Thanks4Giving program a HUGE success in Georgia and across the country. This unique event will touch the lives of thousands of individuals during the fall season, when most of us are enjoying the warmth and safety of our homes, families and friendships. Please consider donating your gently worn men's, women's, or children's shoes to this cause. Tennis shoes to dress shoes are accepted. Please connect the matching pair of shoes together with a rubber band or the laces of the shoes themselves.

There is a drop off location in the lobby of the Science Library on south campus at UGA. The bin will be in place through Monday November 30. Please distribute this message widely so we can gather lots of shoes for people who need them.
