Helping those less fortunate has never been easier. Clear out your closet clutter and drop off your new or gently used shoes at Stan’s Fit For Your Feet annual Share-A-Pair shoe drive through Feb. 28. This year Stan’s is also collecting new socks as part of the drive.
New or gently-used shoes and new socks can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at any of the Share-A-Pair collection bins, including Stan’s Brookfield store in The Plaza, 17155 W. Bluemound Road, or the New Balance store, 17155 W. Bluemound Road, Suite A.
This year’s donated shoes and socks will be distributed locally to a new partner, Milwaukee Rescue Mission as well as ongoing partners Repairers of the Breach, a homeless day shelter in Milwaukee, and Father Gene’s HELP Center in West Allis. The remainder of the shoes will be given to Soles4Souls, a global not-for-profit organization that distributes shoes to people in need and works with qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities around the world.
Anyone donating shoes or new socks to the Share-A-Pair drive will also receive a coupon for $10 off regular price men’s and women's shoes or $5 off regular prices kid’s shoes valid through the end of February at any Stan’s Fit For Your Feet or New Balance Milwaukee location.
