- One World Running helps to promote health in the United States and in developing countries by sending new or nearly new athletic shoes to American shelters as well as Africa, Central America, and Haiti. If the shoes aren’t “nearly new” then they will recycle them into material for tracks and playgrounds. Sounds like a great organization and we figured most people have some shoes that just didn’t get worn for different reasons. And if you have some older ones go ahead and send those in as well as they will help build playgrounds for kids!
This could be a great Girl-Scout or Church activity to help get your
community involved in!
If mailing shoes, please send to:
