Halloween 2017 – all treats, no tricks!

When the whole world is looking for ways to frighten and scare,
Shoecyclists in Chicago are spreading kindness and care!

Kudos to our Chicago Group – Shoecyclists Arnav, Samyak, Ansh and Soham who collected over 600 pairs to help homeless individuals in Chicago.

Here’s the group handing out gently-used pairs before brutal Chicago winter!

 

August 12, 2017 Prepping for a shoe distribution event

It’s was a hot summer day and hundreds of pairs were strewn around us. By now, we know what to look for, and we sorted and packed as we reminisced about people and their stories. We see familiar faces now when we go to St. James park.

Homeless individuals have so many stories – they have lost their families, their jobs, their homes and many times their health. We have connected with so many and hopefully have made our local communities more empathetic to their plight…

 

April 30, 2017 A huge thank you to Maxim Employees

We gratefully acknowledge Maxim employees who collected several hundred pairs of shoes for Shoecyclist. We sent these shoes to Hamilton Family Center in San Francisco and PATH services in San Jose.

August 21, 2016 – Saddened. Overwhelmed. Grateful

To see people waiting patiently in long lines for gently-used shoes is gut-wrenching….

We are heartbroken to see this so close to home – some of the homeless individuals we met are veterans…

We are overwhelmed with the response of our community in giving us gently used shoes and new socks.

We are grateful that we helped a few people today…
