where doing GOOD
is made EASY
Greater Fairfield's go-to site for
volunteering, donating goods, and getting involved

Who does have unused shoes, sneakers, etc. in the back of their closet? Instead of tossing them, recycle them for reuse! Rerun Shoes collects old unwanted shoes and ships them to Africa where they end up on someone else's feet - someone who needs them. Below is information on what they take and where you can make a donation of your old shoes.
