Gently worn shoes wanted! help Ridley Library is looking for shoes

The Ridley Library is collecting gently worn shoes for a good cause. Here is the information they posted on their facebook page:

To coincide with this year’s One Book Every Young Child winner, 'Whose Shoes: A Shoe for Every Job' by Stephen R. Swinburne, the Ridley Township Public Library is starting a shoe donation drive!From March 1 through April 28, patrons can donate their new or gently used shoes, sneakers, boots, and cleats to the library which will be sent to “In Ian’s Boots Inc.” This foundation is located in Pottstown, PA and is dedicated to provi...ding footwear to those in need, and encouraging groups and individuals to sponsor collections for gently used shoes, winter boots and soccer cleats. This organization then cleans, sanitizes, packages and ships the items to where they are needed the most. A bin has been placed in the lower level library in the children’s section for patrons to place their donations. On Thursday, April 28 at 1:00pm, we will have a special program for our One Book Every Young Child. Children will hear the story of 'Whose Shoes," enjoy snacks, create a craft, and afterwards, all donations will be sent to “In Ian’s Boots Inc.” I hope you can help! Thanks! ~Lauren Ridley Library

The library is located at Ridley Township Public Library
100 E. MacDade Blvd
