Have Athletic Shoes To Donate?

Tired of seeing that collection of running shoes build up in your closet? Numerous ultimatums have been issued to me to “get rid of some of those shoes!”

If you’re in this predicament, then the following post from Christine Luff is worth sharing --

Christine’s list includes Shoe Bank, Soles4Shoes and Shoes for Africa.

These are great causes to consider in donating your old shoes, but think locally on this too. Goodwill Industries and other worthy charitable organizations regularly accept these donations for resale in their second-hand retail stores. Other worthy non-profits like Catholic Charities are seeking these types of donations for their program beneficiaries. Numerous Veterans’ organizations accept these donations even to the point of picking them up at your door!

With a little research and effort, you can get that old pile of shoes off quickly to the worthiest cause of your choosing!

Good content. Just wanted to add some buying advice for those on a budget.

There is a huge market for sports shoes but what’s significant is the genuineness of the shoes we intend to buy. Most often we think that a pair of authentic shoes would cost us big money and so we turn to fake shoes which are available at very low prices not realizing the consequences of wearing them in the long run.

However, you will be happy to know that you can still get genuine sports shoes at cheap prices. The only thing that we require is a little bit of research to know which stores stock original stuff and offer good discounts that make genuine shoes affordable and fit our budget. So spend sometime and research online to find where you can shop around, how you can shop and when is the best time to shop.
