Shoe Drive

Throughout 2017, we are partnering with Funds2Orgs to collect gently worn shoes.  Families in developing countries who receive shoes from Funds2Orgs are those who have little to no income or livelihood. The ability of donated shoes to be sold or repurposed, represent an opportunity for individual families and their communities to develop micro-businesses within their areas. It is the only possibility for true self-sustainability. Please consider recycling your shoes to help someone in need. The Sophie House will receive a contribution from Funds2Orgs for the shoes we collect.

You can drop off donations at any time during our community center hours – Monday to Thursday from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm.  After hours, please place donations in the covered bin on our front porch.  Our community center is located at:
