Arizona Fire Stations Collecting Shoes

Scottsdale Fire Department in partnership with the Scottsdale Firefighters Association Local 3878, are collecting new and gently used footwear to benefit Soles4Souls.

Community members are encouraged to drop off ‘gently worn’ shoes and/or boots at one of Scottsdale’s 14 fire stations or the Witzeman Public Safety Building (8401 E. Indian School Road, Scottsdale). Each location will be an ongoing drop location.

Scottsdale Fire Stations are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, we encourage you to try to stop by between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Upon arrival, please ring the door bell or knock on the station door to alert the firefighters you are there to make a donation. If there is no answer, crews may be responding to an emergency call. To locate the nearest fire station, visit

Captain Sasha Weller and members of Scottsdale Fire Department are excited about this new program.

“It’s a great time for spring cleaning” stated Weller. “The simple act of dropping off shoes taking up space in your closet will greatly improve someone’s life in the most difficult of times” he added.
