Let Your Used Shoes Take the Next Step
These boots are made for walkin'... but not for walkin' forever.
If you've worn out your favorite sneakers, sandals, dress shoes, slippers -- any footwear, really -- then maybe it's time to give them a second life via Goodwill NCW.
Affordable footwear is in constant demand at all of our north central Wisconsin store locations. If we can't sell them, we can salvage them. And if we can't salvage them, we can recycle components in them.
By donating footwear to Goodwill, your helping maintain our programs and services -- and reaping a nice tax-deduction in the process. We are 100% not for profit, which means that when you give us your donations, your protecting jobs and services in your community.
"Every year, we collect tons and tons of shoes from north central Wisconsin communities alone," says Jim VandenBoom, Goodwill NCW's community engagement leader. "The environmental impact of keeping them out of the landfill waste stream cannot be understated. Beyond all the good we can create from those donations, the positive environmental impact alone is a victory."
One last thought: If you're a guy, you might consider laying out $315 for a pair of LeBron X Nike Plus Sneakers. If you're a woman, there's a $14,000 pair of Manolo Blahnik alligator boots. At all Goodwill NCW stores, on the other hand, you'll find virtually all footwear -- whether donated or new -- from $2.99 to $12.99. That's a little easier on the wallet ... and the conscience.
