Diane Thomson of Creative Organizing, LLC is collecting shoes as part of a collaboration between The National Association of Professional Organizers and Soles4Souls*.
Soles4Souls, is a Nashville-based charity that provides shoes to the world’s less fortunate men, women, and children. Since 2005, S4S has given away over 14 million pairs of shoes to souls in over 127 countries, including the United States.
All shoes are accepted, except muddy or moldy shoes. This includes women’s heels, sports shoes, slippers and singles. Shoes that cannot be worn will be sent for recycling.
Do not try to clean; if done improperly, mold can grow and spread to other shoes.
Shoe collection boxes are located at: Maplewood Town Hall, Stationers, The Messy Artist, Motion Fitness, and Sneaker Factory.
If you would like to sponsor a shoe collection box at your location or have a large quantity to donate, please contact Diane at 973-534-7974.
