Shoe Collection Fundrasier

In the US alone, approximately 600 million pairs of shoes are thrown away each year. The materials used to manufacture shoes are created from chemical compounds, the kind that will create health hazards if left to disintegrate openly or in landfills. 
Gently worn, used shoes collected through UCAS shoe drive fundraiser are used in developing nations for impoverished people to start, maintain, and grow a micro-enterprise. By donating used shoes to UCAS, individuals are able to provide basic necessities for families in these countries, while helping UCAS raise much needed funds to continue our mission of helping animals in need in our community. Shoes from this fundraiser are consolidated and shipped to on-the-ground business operators where they clean, repair, or melt down outsoles to make a new pair of shoes.

Our goal at UCAS is to collect 2,500 pairs of shoes! We know that sounds like a lot of shoes, but those that know us know we aim high in all we do! Not only will this great help UCAS continue to save more animals, we have the opportunity to help humans in need as well. Please consider becoming a part of this importating fundraising experience. 

Shoes may be donated to the locations below:
Unicoi County Animal Shelter 
Unicoi Wine & Spirits (in front of Walmart in Unicoi)
Natural Pet Supply (People St, Johnson City)
Pinecrest Vet Clinic (Milligan Hwy)

If you or your group has a large amount of shoes- we will happily come to you! Call the shelter for an appointment. 

Please only donate pairs of shoes- no singles. Any type of show is accepted- even sandals and flip flops! COLLECTIONS MUST BE TURNED IN BY JUNE 30TH!
