secondchance01sqParticipate in our "Second Chance" shoe drive. Donations of gently worn, used and new shoes will be accepted. Shoes are used to support micro-enterprise vendors.

Micro-enterprises are small businesses in developing nations. They are typically operated by one person or family and friends, depending on size.

In the U.S. alone, over 600 million pairs of shoes are thrown away each year. Materials used to manufacture a pair of shoes are created from chemical compounds that will create health hazards if left to disintegrate openly or in landfills.

By donating your gently worn, used and new shoes to the Church of the Palms shoe drive, your shoes are given a second chance to make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
