All kinds of shoes in any condition are again being collected until April 30 at the Spencerport United Methodist Church, 32 Amity Street. Boots, flip flops, sneakers, kid’s, men’s and women’s footwear may be donated in the large donation bin located in front of the church building.  Please tie the shoes together in pairs or connect them with a rubber band. Winter boots will be given to local homeless shelters, slightly used shoes will be sent to missions and others will be recycled.

Last year, 3,500 pairs of shoes were collected in Western New York, raising $894 for the veterans outreach centers. Money for the collected shoes is given by the pound to the Upper New York Conference United Methodist Men who distribute these funds to Rochester Veterans Outreach Center, Utica Veterans Food Pantry, and Corporal Kyle R. Schneider Foundation.

Contact the church at sumc@rochester.rr.com or 352-3114 if you have any questions.
