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 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.
