Changing the World One Pair of Shoes at a Time


Girl Scouts and Goodwill Kick off Donation Drive

Over 300 million pairs of reusable shoes are being tossed into the trash every year, when they could be donated to be reused, resold or recycled.

In honor of Earth Day, GSACPC and Goodwill of Central Arizona are teaming up to host a recycling project, Scouting for Shoes. The drive kicked off this week and runs through Saturday, April 18.   

To keep shoes from going directly to landfills, Girl Scouts are encouraged to collect unused shoes and donate them at select Goodwill locations. In exchange for their efforts, each girl will earn a Scouting for Shoes patch recognizing their commitment to our community and environment.
