Used tennis shoes are being collected by Women of Today
The Elk River Area Women of Today will be collecting used tennis shoes, in any condition, for reuse and recycling for the organization Green Sneakers (www.greensneakers.org). The drop-off site for donations is at Payless Shoe Source, 19134 Freeport St., Elk River. Each pair of tennis shoes should be placed in a plastic bag with the shoelaces tied together. The collection box will be set up through Sept. 15. For more information contact Cindy at 612-327-9347.
Through the use of the GreenSneakers program, charities are able to raise funds they require to meet local needs, all while helping support needs on a global scale through the reuse of collected sneakers as affordable footwear to people in need around the world.
