Donate used kids' shoes to children who need them
Not sure how best to recycle used kids' shoes every time their feet grow? If there's plenty of wear left in them, please consider donating to Sal's Shoes, a fledgling but amazing charity. About Sal's Shoes:
We collect outgrown children’s shoes (up to the end of primary school age) and pass them on to their new owners. The last freight delivery was to Romania just before Christmas 2014 and the next one will be to Kenya in March 2015.
We sort by type and not size and collect all sorts of different shoes: flip flops, sandals, school shoes, slippers, trainers, winter boots and football boots.
We collect shoes that can still be worn:
- Solid soles with no holes
- Laces if the shoes need them
- . . . and please think about the recipient of the shoes being donated and give shoes a quick clean before they are passed on – no mud!
We do receive individuals' collections through the post. Children's shoes are surprisingly light and relatively cheap to post and can be sent to:
226 High Street
Croydon CR9 1DF
Please pair your shoes with a rubber band before passing them onto us. We are run entirely by volunteers and this saves them a huge amount of time when sorting and packing shoes.
