Keep Allen Beautiful

[ARCHIVED] Remember to Donate to Reuse-a-Shoe!

Reuse a Shoe Flyer

Each spring, Keep Allen Beautiful sponsors The Shoe Bank’s collection of gently used athletic shoes in Allen as a means of reducing waste and sharing with others. AISD schools compete against one another to collect the most pairs of shoes per capita for reuse. This year The Shoe Bank will send the gently-used shoes to Guatemala and several Native American (Navajo) reservations in the United States. Mike Barringer from The Shoe Bank says that the Allen collection is his largest collection in the Metroplex and he’s grateful for KAB’s sponsorship. The contest runs from Monday, March 31st until Friday, April 18th in AISD schools. Other groups are welcome to coordinate an athletic shoe collection as well. For questions, call 214-509-4552 or email
