Mega Shoe Drive

The Mega Shoe Drive is on until 10,000 pairs of new and gently used running shoes are collected. It doesn't stop there. The Lung Association is collecting all types of shoes to help you clean out that closet. Donate any type of sole, as the shoes, boots, slippers, and or sandals will be sorted and shipped to either the Caribbean or Nunavut.

The running shoes are redistributed to underdeveloped countries like Haiti and Honduras. By making your donation you’re helping the environment since the shoes won’t be going to landfill and the Lung Association will receive a donation for collecting 10,000 pairs. It’s a win-win-win for everyone.

The coordinator is asking for help by setting up a collection point at your work and help spread the word!
