REUSE Heart & Sole -- Give Your Shoes a New Pair of Feet!
For the second year in a row, in support of the REUSE Heart & Sole project sponsored by the Boone County Solid Waste Management District, the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library is a drop-off site for used or new shoes from Monday, February 10th through Monday, February 17th. There will be a white mesh bag near the main entrance on each floor into which donated shoes may be placed. Donations should have laces tied together as a pair or be rubber-banded together if there are no laces. Rubber bands will be provided.
There are some types of shoes that are NOT acceptable, so please DO NOT donate these: slippers, inline skates, ice skates, winter boots, shoes with higher than a 2-inch heel or heavily soiled shoes. Donations will be given to needy men, women and children all over the world so that they can be comfortable at work and play.
So, as you sort through your wardrobe and look at the shoes you have, if you have some that just don't match the clothes you got over the holidays or some that you've outgrown or just don't care for anymore, bring them to the Library the week of Feb. 10th - 17th. REUSE Heart & Sole will make sure they have new life for someone who will be extremely grateful!
