"Share a Pair" in Milwaukee

Stan's Fit for your Feet is hosting the second annual "share a pair" shoe drive during the entire month of February. They will be collecting new and gently used shoes of all types, sizes and styles.

"We'll take boots, casual shoes, athletic shoes, sandals, whatever you got," said owner Jim Sajdak in a television interview on Fox 6 in Milwaukee. "There is a need for all kinds of footwear for all kinds of people."

Most of the shoes will be sent to Soles4Souls for distribution, which will inspect them send them to countries in need. Some will be given locally to area shelters and other charities. Last year, Stan's Fit for your Feet collected an astounding 5,000 pairs of shoes in a single month.

As a way of saying "thank you", Stan's will be handing out $10 gift certificates to anyone and everyone donating a usable pair of footwear. Stan's has three stores located in Glendale, Greenfield and Brookfield. Folks can drop off their shoes Monday through Friday at 9:30am-9pm, Saturday 9:30am-5:30pm or Sunday from noon to 5pm.
