Pair Of Shoes Stock Photo via

There is a very motivated lady here in town and she is taking her efforts to the max for a very special shoe drive in November. Maybe you have visited one of these 25 places and have spotted a tall brown shoe donation box full or empty: (If you aren't in the Cleveland/Akron Area, you can STILL HELP!

If you have been to these places, but didn't know you could bring shoes, would you please go back with some old pairs (any condition) and drop them in the donation box? 
If you haven't been to these places, maybe you will ask your family to collect all of their old shoes and stop by with a bag before November 30th?

 My friend Jen has set a goal of 25,000 (yes- that is 'double-digit-thousand'). She is, to my knowledge, up to approximately 1,200 pairs…and averaging about 100 pair a day. She has a wonderful team of friends helping her visit all of these locations in and around Cleveland to pick up shoes.
