Participate in a Sole-ful Experience! Donate gently used shoes (pairs only) of any size or type! Collection helps local non-profits Paws to People and Sanctuary at ABQ fund projects that improve the lives of people and pets in our community. The donated shoes go to a micro-business project that uses the shoes in poverty-stricken countries to teach the skills of shoe repair and provide small business opportunities. Paws To People and Sanctuary@ABQ earn a “finders’ fee” for the shoes they collect, and you get to declutter your closet!
The shoe donation drive is ongoing through December 15th, however for this special event day we have some surprises planned! The first 10 veterans to donate shoes will receive a special gift in honor of Veterans Day. Prizes will be awarded for: biggest single person donation; biggest group donation; and largest kids’ donation. Plus, enter a photo of your pet styling shoes for a chance to win the voter’s choice award for Best Foot Fetish.
