This month’s “Give Where You Live” focuses on the Salvation Army Shoe Drive.
U.Va’s Office of Community Relations and the Salvation Army are running a shoe drive!
This is a great chance to donate your used, but usable men’s, women’s and children’s shoes to those in need.
Monday Feb. 1 – Friday Feb. 5!
Drop Off Points:
- Fontaine Research Park (1st Floor Kitchen)
- Piedmont Center
- Health System Development (2410 Old Ivy Road)
Additionally, volunteers are needed for shoe sorting!
- February 12 @ 4:00P
- February 13 @ 12:00P
Every month, I will post a segment called “Give Where You Live,” which will be focused on Charlottesville and the surrounding counties, reminding us of little things we can do to make our community a better place. There are tons of incredible non-profits and charities around the area, and hopefully these segments will help residents become more familiar with some of the different needs in the community and maybe even inspire some giving!
I will try to post about a variety of needs and programs, from big to small, so if you know of a great local cause that is running a donation-based or volunteer campaign, please feel free to send the details my way and I will make an effort to include them in an upcoming “Give Where You Live”!
