"We are also keeping old shoes out of local landfills," Rev. Baldwin said. Residents can help by donating their used sneakers, heels, sandals, boots, cleats, slippers and other types of shoes in every size. All donated shoes will be redistributed to microenterprise partners and used in developing nations for impoverished people to start, maintain, and grow a unique business opportunity to feed, clothe, and house their families.
"Please clean out your closets, ask your family and friends and donate your shoes today. We will pick up donations of at least 25 pairs in Mobile County," Baldwin said. Donation receipt available upon request.
