Walk a Mile in Their Shoes


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.
