Here in Monroe, LA there is a way to share your new and gently used shoes with those who are less fortunate here in NE Louisiana. It’s called the Monroe Proud Pair Share Shoe Drive and runs through November 30th.
Most of us have shoes in our closet that we never wear. This is a way to put them to good use and to help your neighbor who may not be able to afford a good pair of shoes. The goal is to collect 3,000 pairs of shoes.
According to THIS ARTICLE IN THE NEWS-STAR:
Residents can donate shoes at any Monroe City or Ouachita Parish school and all city of Monroe Community Centers. Shoes should be tied by the laces or bound together with rubber bands to prevent loss and the need for later sorting issues.
What a great way to make a difference in our community! The Keep Monroe Beautiful website is HERE (appears to be seldom updated).
