Calling all families who want to do some good together! Join Soles4Souls in our mission to turn unwanted shoes into opportunity for people in need.

Since 2006, our supporters and partners have kept more than 51 million pounds of textiles out of landfills (that includes over 40 million pairs of shoes!), and we’ve distributed them in 127 countries and all 50 U.S. States.

Reach out to your community, encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to clean out their closets, and donate the shoes they no longer use. It's a safe, easy, and impactful way for people to turn unwanted shoes into opportunity-keeping them from going to waste and putting them to good use. Donated shoes provide relief, help create opportunities for women entrepreneurs in the developing world, and empower people to break the cycle of poverty.

(Please make sure volunteers are adhering to local CDC guidelines regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more at https://soles4souls.org/covid-19/)

If you would like more information on how to get started, please respond to our Volunteer Match listing or get registered at https://soles4souls.org/shoe-drive-registration/.


Soles4Souls has a Regional Donation Center based in Wilsonville, OR, and can work with you to successfully complete your drive and accept your final donation of shoes.

Thank you!
