No surprise: Green Sneakers a success

Thanks to the generosity of Payless Shoe Source of Elk River, along with the city of Elk River and surrounding communities, the Elk River Area Women of Today collected over 120 pounds of used sneakers during their Green Sneakers drive this fall.

The shoes will be recycled, keeping them out of landfills, while helping provide jobs for others.
