Shoes are one of the most needed item for someone who is unhoused and in need. They provide comfort, relief of pain, prevent and heal foot problems, help individuals obtain employment and provide dignity. We like to say that “Shoes are medicine for the feet”.
Please participate in our Project 65,000. 65,000 is the approximate number of unhoused men, women and children in the greater Los Angeles area at any given time. Our goal is to provide a good pair of shoes to all those who are in need.
Help us obtain 65,000 pair of shoes
Please donate your lightly used or new men’s, women’s and children’s shoes. Place the pairs of shoes in bags, tie the shoe laces and drop off the shoes at one of our many drop off locations. For a list of the drop off locations: https://www.shoesforthehomeless.net/la
