Letters: PTA hosting Athletic Shoe Recycling Drive

Support Local Journalism


The Winters Combined PTA is rolling out its first Athletic Shoe Recycling Drive over the entire month of September. We feel strongly about promoting the sustainability of previous owned shoes while also making money to directly benefit both our local elementary schools. Shoe recycling drop off bins will be located at Waggoner Elementary School, Shirley Rominger Elementary School and Steady Eddy’s Coffee House. We have a goal to hit over 100 pairs of athletic shoes donated.

Shoes must be athletic shoes in either Excellent, Good, Fair or Poor condition (we get a small kick back on even the gnarliest of athletic shoes). They must be donated in PAIRS. We accept all sizes, including toddler sizes. Please do not donate shoes that are not deemed athletic shoes, these include but are not limited to: work boots, rain boots, sandals, slippers, heels, wedges and flats. We do not receive compensation for non-athletic shoes.

Help us make an impact on both our environment and our children’s education. If you have any further questions please email the PTA directly at winterspta@gmail.com.

We love this community and can’t wait to watch the bins fill.

Danielle Smith
Winters Combined PTA President
