mission is to provide the Seattle Washington region with a
centralized donation center for proper footwear and care via slightly
used and new shoes and socks. We aim to distribute all donations to
Seattle area organizations allowing them to focus on their main
We have collected and distributed over 20,000 pairs of shoes since our start in 2011 and have a goal of 50,000 for 2012. We accept all types of shoes from flip flops to high heels, men, women and children. They must be in gently used or new condition. There is also a huge need for new socks by all organizations we are currently working with. You can donate shoes and socks at these Seattle area drop offs
Fact: According to a survey from the University of Hawaii, 20% of homeless medical visits are for their feet.
It cost just over $1 per pair of shoes to collect, prepare and distribute. Yes, we get the shoes donated but we do have overhead like warehouse, preparation supplies, insurance and once and a while a coffee.
