MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Mamaroneck Avenue School, along with Funds2Orgs and the Fifth Grade leadership program, has been conducting a shoe drive throughout.
The school is collecting all types of shoes (men's, women's, children's, winter, summer, boots, flip flops, new, old, gently used and not so gently used). Any shoes will work, as long as there are two of them.
All the shoes collected will go to help people in developing countries and will keep thousands of shoes out of landfills.
The school is asking local residents to clean out their closets and bring the shoes to the school. Drop-off boxes can be found at the main entrances of Mamaroneck Avenue School, 850 Mamaroneck Ave.
You also can drop off your donation at 536 Munro Ave., Mamaroneck, near the harbor, or contact Jeanne Spano at firstname.lastname@example.org or 914-224-4846 to arrange a pickup.
