July 1 – August 31

Donate Your Shoes!

For every pound of shoes collected, Sojourner Truth House will receive $0.40 cents, which will contribute to our mission and programs.

Shoes must be in a pair and be new or gently used.

The donated shoes will be sent to developing countries, where they will help people create micro-enterprises and improve their livelihoods.

Every pair of shoes can make a significant impact. By supporting our shoe drive fundraiser, you’ll empower individuals in developing countries to start small businesses and lift themselves out of poverty.

What is Micro-Enterprise?

Micro-enterprises are small businesses, generally owned and operated by families of 1-2 people. Because of systemic poverty in many developing countries around the world, working-age adults have to create their own economic opportunities. These micro-enterprises could be as small as a stall or shack or a brick-and-mortar shop. When you do a shoe drive fundraiser, you help provide the inventory for people worldwide. They sell the shoes you gather in their communities, which promotes commerce opportunities and leads to economic sustainability.
