We are currently collecting old shoes. (We aren’t scared of stinky things!) Shoes will go to third world nations to provide them shoes and a small income. If we collect 2500 pair, we will receive $1000 to help with animal care costs! It’s a win win! (And you get to clan your closet!) Drop off at center each day between 4-6PM from now until July 31. Boxes are at lower level door. THANK YOU! Shoes only, please! 487 Gentry Ln, Mt Washington, KY 40047
