I never know what to do with old running shoes. Jacob Feid had a great idea. He collected shoes at Good Shepherd Lutheran (GSLC) in Gaithersburg and recycled them through a program run by Nike. Penny Risen wrote up the experience for the congregation’s newsletter, and The Lutheran magazine shared the story in “Piling up shoes,” March 2011 edition.
There are drop off points for YOUR pair of old sneakers in the Metro D.C. area through the Nike ReUse A Shoe program. Find locations, and learn more about coordinating a drive, at www.nikereuseashoe.com.
