Shoes being collected for donation to needy (Lucy Boutique in Oakmont, PA)

Lucy in Oakmont (PA) wants your old shoes.

The boutique is collecting used footwear in any condition on behalf of Soles4Souls, a nonprofit group founded in December 2004 after a tsunami hit Southeast Asia.

Soles4Souls facilitates donations of shoes to people around the globe who need them, including in the United States, Africa, Sudan, Venezuela, Honduras, Ecuador, Southeast Asia and the Dominican Republic.

Lucy will accept shoe donations through February. Drop off your women's, men's and children's footwear during the shop's regular hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday; and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Thursday. All donors can register for a $100 gift certificate giveaway offered by Lucy.

Lucy is at 510 Allegheny River Blvd., Oakmont. Details: 412-820-2410.
