SHOE COLLECTIONS

March - May  |  Shoe Collections


 

Collect gently worn shoes with no holes, and with the soles still attached, and Go Beyond can trade those shoes for funds to purchase building supplies for local construction projects serving the elderly, and families in need.

The shoes you collect will be used as inventory to help an aspiring entrepreneur open a shoe store in a country of need to help their family and community get out of poverty. The primary country of focus will be Haiti.

Let the Go Beyond Team know that you plan to collect shoes so that you can be listed as a collection location.
