Shoe Drive

Girl Scout Gold Award Project for Missions

My name is Penny Walke and I am a member of Andrew Chapel UMC. I am working on my Gold Award for Girl Scouts by creating a nonprofit to collect shoes and distribute them to people in need. I have already collected upwards of 300 pairs of shoes and have distributed them to places like Women Giving Back, The Closet in Herndon, and Cunningham Park Elementary School. I am looking for gently-used shoes of all sizes and types. The shoes that are unable to be given away will go to a recycling facility where they reuse the materials. The shoes that can be given away are sanitized, inventoried, and then distributed to places in need around the community. The will be a dropbox at the church along with the option for the shoes to be picked up. For any questions or inquiries, please contact walkewellshoes@gmail.com. Thank you so much for your generosity!

You may drop off donations to the Shoe Drive Donation Box, located outside by the church kitchen door.
