Started in 2009, Rerun Shoes was created to help people here in the US and in other parts of the world re-cycle old shoes. In addition to providing shoes (in good condition) to children and families in the neediest nations, their shoes provide opportunities to micro-businesses throughout the African continent.
Rerun Shoes is a nationwide charitable organization, but its home-base is right here in Florence, MA. To learn more about this organization, please visit their website: www.rerunshoes.com.
Not all shoes can become Rerun Shoes. Shoes that have too much wear, or don’t have a need in African countries (i.e., winter boots), won’t make the cut. Here are the shoes that they look for and welcome: athletic shoes, men’s shoes, women’s shoes (no high heels please), children’s shoes and sports sandals (please no flip-flops or Crocs).
A collection container has been placed inside the front entrance of the church. So if you have old shoes in decent shape that are only taking up space in your house, please bring them by the church for collection and distribution to those who would so much love to wear what we have outworn.
Faith, love and chitchat.
