ShoeBox Recycling Opportunity!

posted Oct 31, 2013, 8:58 AM by Laura Giuggio


Dear Center School Families,


We just signed up for ShoeBox Recycling! It’s an amazing community service fundraising opportunity where you we can actually Recycle Your Shoes, Find Your SoleMate!


The collection begins Monday, November 4th.


We will be collecting shoes for reuse, spreading the message that ‘worn is not worn out’ and hopefully connecting with people around the globe through the magic of a SoleMate note. Just like the old ‘message in a bottle,’ only now the vessel is your shoes that you no longer wear. You can connect with the person who received your shoes by leaving a note inside your shoes!


People all over the globe depend on second hand shoes:

§  So they can attend school

§  To protect against bacteria born illnesses

§  For Self Esteem

§  For Job Creation


SHOES NEED TO BE IN WEARABLE CONDITION!!! The following shoes are not accepted:

  • Uggs
  • Crocs
  • Ice Skates
  • Rollerblades/skates
  • Shoes with holes, or rips
  • No large winter boots
  • Rubber boots
  • Flip flops
  • Slippers


So, scour your closets, empty your trunk, clean the garage and find the shoes that we can reuse! Your SoleMate is waiting!


A large cardboard box will be waiting outside the Community Room  for collection.


With heartfelt appreciation,


Center School PTO
