Walk a Mile in Their Shoes

WHAT IS THE SHOE MISSION?

As an ongoing mission and fundraiser, THRIVE Peninsula collects shoes of all types and all conditions.

 

The shoes help make a 3-step difference:

  1. Support the development of micro-enterprises in third world nations (primarily Haiti)

  2. Keep shoes out of our local landfills

  3. Earn funds to support local families in distress. Since 2014, the organization has raised $28,000 through this initiative, which in turn, supports our programs.

Donation Drop-Off

Shoes and other donations can be delivered to THRIVE during our normal business hours: Monday – Thursday from 10am – 5pm and Fridays 10am - 2pm.

For your convenience, shoe donations (less than 50 pair) can also be dropped off at our community partner locations:

Host a Shoe Drive

To support THRIVE and this mission, we invite you to host a shoe drive at your church, gym, community center, or workplace.

 

You can use your own signage and collection box or, simply contact us and let us know you'd like to stop by to pick up one or two of our Red Bins with Signage, all ready to go! 

 

Promote your drive on social media, in community bulletin boards, church or community newsletters, and through email. We can help - just ask!
