FFC prides itself on giving back to local nonprofits that need our community’s support. This September, we are hosting a gently-worn athletic shoe drive benefiting Share Your Soles. Share Your Soles organizes shoe drives and other special events that provide the necessary support to put shoes on the soles of children and adults in the most impoverished areas of the world.

Their greatest need is for like-new athletic shoes, but good quality sandals, school shoes, boots, dress shoes, and work shoes are also appreciated (please, no shoes with a heel).

Please bring any gently-worn shoes you would like to donate to any of our 10 locations between September 16 – 30, and we will take care of delivering your donation to Share Your Soles! We appreciate your support! Non-members are welcome to participate.
