On behalf of the Gaylord-Hansen Shoe Foundation, we sincerely thank YOU for being a HUGE part of our mission. We believe the basic necessity of shoes provides both health and happiness to growing kids. 100% of your donation goes to supplying San Diego School kids of the enlisted military, with the shoes they need to stride towards the opportunities they deserve. Even if it’s just 1 pair of shoes, new or used, ever donation matters!
This year, our New Shoe Event will be held on October 6, 2017 at North Terrace Elementary and Santa Margarita Elementary schools in Oceanside.
How can you help?
All year long, we hold used shoe drives throughout San Diego County; collecting gently worn shoes of all shapes and sizes and giving them a new path with the help of a partnering recycling company. Funds raised are just the first ripple of benefits. Items in good condition are exported to developing nations meeting the demand for quality shoes at a low cost, waste is deferred from landfills and numerous employment opportunities are created both in the U.S., and abroad. We are passionate about making a difference on a multitude of levels, and encourage any individuals, business or organizations willing to hold a used shoe drive to please contact us by clicking here.
