Recycling Shoes

Has anyone found a place to recycle shoes? I have a few pairs that are beyond repair/not worth it (payless, cheapie shoes). I've seen stuff for recycling shoes in the Northern Suburbs, but wondering if anyone has heard of anything in the city.

  • llitman I'm a happy resident and have been here for years.

    I hear there is an organization called Soles for Souls. I don't much else, just that they exist and are all about the shoes.

    Needed donations: computers (less than 4 years old), smart phones (less than 4 years old), strollers, diapers (disposable, all sizes), microwaves, warm winter coats and boots (gently used or new, all sizes). We need items delivered. If you have big items that one family needs, I may be able to organize to have you deliver them directly. We do not have a way to pick up big or heavy donations.
    We're a neighborhood community group helping dozens of newly arrived refugee families. Tabor Lutheran Church at 3542 W. Sunnyside has provided us a couple rooms to store the donations, and also the families come there to "shop" (free). We staff (volunteers) the room 2 days a month, 1st Sat 10am-noon, and 3rd Tues 7pm-9pm, each month. So the next day is Sat Dec 2nd in the morning, 10am-noon.
