Welcome to shoe kansas city
Bring Your Old Shoes to Elite Feet
JOIN in the effort to collect gently used shoes for Kansas City citizens in need.
Please check your closets. Pack up any shoes you don’t wear and bring them with you to Elite Feet: running shoes, work boots, dress shoes, sandals, cowboy boots — you name it, we’ll take it. All types & sizes, child through adult. Drop them into our collection box.
Don’t worry that your “worn” shoes/boots might be a little too worn. We want any pair that protects someone’s feet from the cold, damp winter or hot, dry summer pavement. (Of course, we’ll take nice shoes, too.)
Last year, Shoe Kansas City (started by our friends at Elite Feet) collected and donated 9,000 pairs of shoes to Missouri and Kansas charities.
This is a great opportunity to clear out your old shoes – the running shoes without enough spring, the boots you’re replacing with something more stylish, the pumps you’re never going to squeeze into again.
**Thanks Susan Strobel for getting the word out to fellow Shawnee Mission High Kids and parents.
Collects and Donates
Elite Feet collects and donates shoes to five different charitable organizations for families and individuals year round.
In 2010 Elite Feet started an annual fall event, SHOE KANSAS CITY, focused on collecting as many shoes as possible for distribution during the holiday season to all in need. The campaign successfully collected and donated over 9,000 pairs of shoes last year.
Elite Feet started collecting and donating shoes to one organization twelve years ago. They were primarily distributed to homeless individuals. We added two more organizations several years ago and now we have five different organizations who distribute them to homeless and/or under served individuals AND FAMILIES. The need for gently used shoes has substantially increased during the last two to three years due to the recession and lost jobs.
