February 1 – 28, 2022 Aimed at Helping Everyone
Less Fortunate in Greater Milwaukee
GREATER MILWAUKEE, WI –The pandemic has been difficult the last two years and a lot of people have been negatively impacted financially. Here’s a way you can spread kindness to those less fortunate in Greater Milwaukee simply by clearing out your closet.
Drop off your new or gently used shoes, sneakers and boots for men, women, and kids as well as new socks at Stan’s Fit For Your Feet annual “Share-A-Pair” drive from Tuesday, February 1 through Monday, February 28.
Items can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at any of the “Share-A-Pair” collection bins at Stan’s in Brookfield at The Plaza at 17155 W. Bluemound Road; Stan’s in Glendale across from BayShore at 505 W. Silver Spring Drive; Stan’s in Greenfield in the Layton Plaza at 7405 W. Layton Avenue; New Balance Milwaukee store in Brookfield at 17155 W. Bluemound Road, Suite A; or New Balance Milwaukee in Greenfield at 7411 W. Layton Ave. And, The Vionic Store in Brookfield at The Plaza at 17155 W. Bluemound Road.
This year the donated shoes, sneakers, boots and socks for men, women, and kids will be distributed locally to the Milwaukee Rescue Mission/Joy House, Repairers of the Breach homeless day shelter in Milwaukee, and Father Gene’s HELP Center in West Allis. The remainder of the shoes will be given to Soles4Souls, a global not-for-profit organization that distributes shoes to impoverished people in over 125 countries around the world.
According to Megan Sajdak, marketing director for Stan’s Fit For Your Feet, “Customers will also be able to round up their in-store and online purchases to benefit these three deserving local Milwaukee charities participating in Share A Pair Shoe Drive. It’s just one more way we thought we would continue to help those less fortunate in our community,” said Megan Sajdak, director of marketing for Stan’s Fit For Your Feet.
Anyone donating gently used or new shoes, sneakers or boots or new socks to the “Share-A-Pair” drive will also receive $10 off their next regular price men’s and women's shoe purchase valid through the end of February at any Stan’s Fit For Your Feet or New Balance Milwaukee location.
Sajdak adds that “The community can also get to know our charity organizations better by tuning into our Facebook Live events on February 9, 17 and 23 at 7 pm, and watching video profiles about them on our website Stansfootwear.com. Now more than ever it is so important for us to spread kindness.”
Since its inception 16 years ago, Stan’s Fit For Your Feet’s annual “Share-A-Pair” shoe drive has collected more than 310,000 new and gently-used pairs of shoes from Greater Milwaukee residents. For more information on the “Share-A-Pair” shoe drive, visit www.stansfootwear.com or call 262-432-4030.
