Spring Shoe Drive & Volunteer Opportunity for Changing Footprints

It's time for spring cleaning! Indy Runners will be collecting shoes for Changing Footprints, a 501c3 organization that donates shoes to 60 local agencies and 17 countries. Donations are tax deductible and ALL shoes (including heels, boots, flip flops, slippers, cleats, etc.) in ANY condition will be accepted. Unwearable shoes will be used to make playgrounds and artificial fields - no shoe gets wasted! Look for the bin at one of our weekly group runs. Don't forget to tie laced shoes together!
Following the drive, we will have a volunteer day at Changing Footprints to sort and box shoes for distribution - stay tuned for date and time! Contact givingback@indyrunners.org with questions. Happy donating!
