WHAT HAPPENS TO THE SHOES?
The shoes collect in your shoe drive fundraiser are processed in our Los Angeles warehouse for export to various countries in South America, Central America & Africa. There, we work with businesses where we create thousands of jobs for micro-entrepreneurs who resell, repair, and re-purpose the shoes as a means of supporting their families. It’s an amazing way to help people become self-sufficient and get them out of the poverty trap and on to a brighter path.

WHAT DOES NEW OR GENTLY WORN SHOES MEAN?
When you host an Angel Bins shoe drive fundraiser the quality of she shoes is essential. All shoes collected from a Angel Bins fundraiser are distributed globally. The very same shoes you collect, end up on the soles of thousands of people across the globe. Many of the shoes from your donation are sent to improvised nations where shoes are a necessity. When we say gently worn, we mean NO holes. The shoes must have good soles left. If you wouldn’t wear them, please do not put them in your collection.
