Mast Store Kicks Off Sharing Our Shoes Drive In Local Communities

May 03, 2019 10:18AM

During the month of May, Mast Store asks that you join it as it reaches out into our communities and fills a need: shoes.

A pair of shoes may mean little to those who have so many, but to others, even one single pair can mean everything. And donating to those in need can mean the same to you. So, if you’ve “Kondo’d” your closets, or simply spring cleaned them, and you have some shoes that didn’t quite spark your joy but are still in good condition, bring them to any Mast Store location. They are accepting gently worn shoes that still have some miles left on them, and they need all styles and varieties. From gym shoes to dress casual to business appropriate, shoes can span all types for all genders, ages, and uses.

Simply connect the shoes into pairs via a rubber band or by tying the laces together and drop them off at your local Mast Store. They’ll take it from there and see that they wind up sparking joy in someone else’s life by helping them put their best foot forward.

Mast will have a little help distributing all these shoes. Each store has partnered with a local community-centered nonprofit organization to reach as many folks as possible.

Their store in Columbia will distribute shoes via the Transitions Homeless Center where folks can go from the streets to self-reliance with a hand up.

For more information about Sharing Our Shoes, call your local Mast Store at 803-771-2300.
