Where can I drop off old shoes kids/adults.. That are in decent condition... I guess what is not in decent condition will go in the garbage...

They have a green bin for shoes drop off near 4 corners on county line. Just keep the lm together with a rubber-band.

I’m sure there are more drop off locations- perhaps someone can chime in.

Please, please, only shoes in new or like new condition. Nothing with worn heels, ratty shoelaces, scuffs, deep wrinkles, the shape of a foot embedded in the insole, or clinging dirt. It’s humiliating enough to have to get shoes from a gmach, no need to further insult the recipients with shoes that already look, and are, old.

And please be considerate of the people who run the gmach, too. If shoes are old, dump them in the trash yourself. It’s no pleasure handling other people’s shoes, no need to force the volunteers to handle dirty, smelly things that they have to throw out. Some volunteers go the extra mile and clean off shoes that look good except for the dirt, but imho it is total wickedness to deposit such shoes in the bin. If you want to do a mitzvah, do it right and all the way. Clean the stuff first.

This has been a PSA from Gmach Volunteers of America.
