“Thank you so much for gathering those shoes; our clients will certainly appreciate it. Shoes are expensive and easily worn out by the homeless population, so it is really practical to help them out with this resource.
I hope you, all, are proud of what you do, because it makes a positive impact on a marginalized group.”
-Email from PATH San Jose, CA for Jan 2018 donation
Last month, Shoecyclist coordinated a shoe-collection drive at the Athenian school in Danville. With the generous support of students and staff, we collected hundreds of shoes in great condition.
After sorting them over the holidays, we dropped five large boxes today to a great organization that directly reaches homeless individuals, PATH San Jose.
This email is a reminder that CA is home to the largest homeless population in the country and shoes are one of the precious resources they need….
Thank you for your generous donations and for enabling Shoecyclist to make a difference.
