The average person in North America throws away 70 pounds of textiles every year. That’s 21 billion pounds of extra waste dumped in our landfills every year! And the EPA estimates only 15% is donated or recycled.
Since 2006, our amazing supporters have diverted 67 million pounds of shoes and clothing from landfills.
Through our micro-enterprise program, we equip women in developing countries to start and sustain small businesses through the sale of shoes. Shoes that YOU donate. We’re also able to provide new shoes to people in need.
Make sure to include a Dollar General Donor Form in every bag or box of shoes you donate, so we can keep track of your donation!
Collect shoes in your community and provide opportunity for people all over the world!
We make it easy to donate your gently used shoes! Find the drop off location closest to you.
