Cave Associates is assisting PointMap and NAPO-Minnesota to collect shoes to donate to the Soles4Souls organization. We are looking for all types of shoes (dressy to sneakers) in any condition (new to very used), but children’s shoes are of particular value. Shoes in good condition are given directly to those in need; shoes needing repair are sent to a developing nation micropreneur program for repair and sale; very used shoes are deconstructed and recycled, providing employment for impoverished people in Pakistan.
Shoes will be collected until September 30, 2012. A collection bin is located at 2345 Rice Street, in Roseville, under the steps inside the South entrance. For more information on Soles4Souls, click here to visit their website.
