GAINESVILLE - Keep Hall Beautiful (KHB) is collecting shoes up until their annual yard sale on November 2.
Executive Director Kelly Norman said KHB has partnered with Funds 2 Orgs for the shoe drive, allowing them to turn the shoes they collect into funds.
"They [Funds 2 Orgs] allocate us a certain amount of money per pound of shoes that we collect here in the community," Norman explained. "Then, they turn around and help developing nations set up small enterprises within their communities."
Shoes of all types are accepted; Norman says shoes that are well worn can be recycled for other uses.
Those wishing to collect or donate can stop by the KHB office on Washington St.in Gainesville. Bags and boxes are available for larger collections. KHB is requesting that bags contain 25 pairs of shoes.
