Shoe Donations

Used Shoes Change Lives

Gen1's Shoe Collection Project takes used shoes of all types and turns them into funds that support our projects.  We collect your used shoe donations and export them to developing nations where they are sold in outdoor  street markets.

This process has two outcomes. We are able to provide valuable jobs and incomes to the people selling the shoes at local markets, and Gen1 Project is able to utilize the finances from exporting the shoes to help fund our projects around the globe.

How To Donate

  1. Gather up your used shoes and if possible, bundle the individual pairs together with rubber bands.
  2. Bring your shoes to the closest donation drop off location.  For large amounts of shoes, use heavy duty trash bags to transport the shoes.
