Changing Footprints is a 100% volunteer organization that collects and redistributes 20,000 pairs of used shoes per year to organizations who serve those in need: Wheeler Mission (homeless), Coburn Safe Place (domestic abuse), Dress For Success (career assistance), Children (Evan's House), Community Re-integration (Catholic Charities), Veterans (HVAF), and more.
Changing Footprints is Green. These are shoes that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Solid Waste districts around the state (Gary, Seymour, Wabash) are doing shoe drives, and we need to find someone who loves to drive and travel to pick up the shoes in our trailer and bring them to our sorting room at 9302 N. Meridian. THEREFORE, you need either a vehicle with a trailer hitch, or a van/box truck you could use. If you simply love to drive, we can provide the van/box truck.
YOU can make a real difference. Without your help, these shoes don't make it to those in need. YOU can keep 10,000 additional pairs per year out of the landfill. Whether you can make one trip per year or two or three, flexing to meet your schedule, we need your help.

P.S. we are also developing contacts for those in need in all corners of Indiana, so we may be delivering shoes at the same time we pick them up. Two great conributions in one trip!
