Stan’s Share-a-Pair Shoe and Sock Drive | Sharing Love in Milwaukee this Winter
GREATER MILWAUKEE, WI – Stan’s Fit for Your Feet is bringing back its signature “Share-a-Pair” Shoe and Sock Drive this February in a time with the greater Milwaukee community needs it most. The economic impact of COVID-19 has left many in Greater Milwaukee struggling to make ends meet. Unemployment is high and the need to help others in our community is great.
The “Share-a-Pair” Shoe and Sock Drive aims to get gently used shoes, sneakers, and boots for men, women and kids (as well as new socks) into the hands (and onto the feet) of those in need via partnerships with local non-profits.
How can you get involved?
DONATE: Simply clear out your closet and drop off your new or gently used shoes, sneakers and boots for men, women, and kids as well as new socks at Stan’s Fit For Your Feet annual “Share-A-Pair” drive from Monday, February 1 through Sunday, February 28. Anyone donating gently used or new shoes, sneakers or boots or new socks to the “Share-A-Pair” drive will also receive $10 off their next regular price men’s and women’s shoe purchase valid through the end of February at any Stan’s Fit For Your Feet or New Balance Milwaukee location.
SHOP AT STAN’S: According to Megan Sajdak, marketing director for Stan’s Fit For Your Feet, “A new component to our shoe and sock drive this year is that customers will also be able to round up their in-store and online purchases to benefit the three charities participating in Share A Pair Shoe Drive.”
