Got Sneakers Fundraiser


We are happy to announce a new partner in our fundraising- Got Sneakers!  This sneaker drive keeps our old, non-biodegradable sneakers out of landfills and instead recirculated to people who need footwear at affordable prices.  Sneakers collected with this fundraiser are also repurposed into new surfaces such as playgrounds and tracks.  


We are collecting gently used ATHLETIC SHOES only, in both Adult sizes and Big Kids sizes 4+. Please do not send any dress shoes, boots, flip flops, etc.  We are compensated for each pair of Like New/New and Lightly/Moderately Used sneakers we collect!  You can send in your bagged sneakers starting Monday and until the end of the school year.  It’s time to do some spring cleaning and free up some closet space in your home.  We all have sneakers we have outgrown! 

You can read more about this great organization at:

Got Sneakers? A Sneaker Recycling Organization
