The Shelby YMCA Community Center is conducting a shoe collection drive on April 1- 30, to raise funds for improvements while benefiting microenterprise ventures in developing nations and keeping old shoes out of local landfills.

Individuals can help by donating gently worn, used shoes at SHELBY YMCA. In the US alone, approximately 630 million pairs of shoes are thrown away per year. The materials used to manufacture a pair of shoes are created from chemical compounds that will create health hazards if left to disintegrate openly or in landfills.

By donating your gently worn, used shoes to the Shelby YMCA, your shoes are given a second chance to make a difference. All donated shoes will be redistributed to microenterprise partners through Funds2Orgs and used in developing nations for impoverished people to start, maintain, and grow a unique business opportunity to feed, clothe, and house their families.

“We are very excited to be conducting this shoe drive in Shelby, Ohio" notes Kim Stover, Executive Director. "This campaign will raise funds that directly benefit The Shelby YMCA and be used for facility and equipment updates."

"You can also attend a free fitness class for your donation. The additional advantages of diverting shoes from the waste stream to create commerce and sustainability in peoples’ lives make this a win-win for everyone,” said Stover. "Our goal is to collect 2500 pairs of shoes. The only way we can do that is if community members step up and help. I am calling on everyone to clean out their unwanted, gently worn, used shoes and donate them to us."
