STATEWIDE–New and gently used athletic shoes are being collected for Hoosiers in need. That’s being done by members of the Indiana House of Representatives who are partnering with the non-profit organization Samaritan’s Feet.

If you’d like to make a donation, you can drop shoes off at the Statehouse where there are donation bins. Online donations are also being accepted here. 

Republican State representative Lori Goss-Reaves of Marion says having shoes that fit is a luxury many of us take for granted.

“The reality is that many vulnerable children and seniors don’t, and that can affect learning, confidence, physical ability and independence. By making a donation, whether that be through money or shoes, Hoosiers have a chance to really make a difference in someone’s life,” said Goss-Reaves.

Donations are being accepted through March 1. After that, distribution events will then be planned in different areas across the state.
