Packing and Shipping the Shoes

Once your shoe drive is complete, you are ready to pack and ship your shoes.

Part 1: Packing
1. Take shoes out of the shoe box and remove all tags and paper. Socks need to be left in their packaging.

2. Match the shoes. Tie the shoestrings together or secure them together with a rubber band.

3. Write a note, draw a picture or tuck a photo inside the shoes for the child who will receive them (optional).

4. Place the shoes in a sturdy shipping box. Don't forget to count the shoes and socks as you are packing them. Write the number of shoes and socks on the side of the box.

5. Download and complete the shoe packing form and enclose it in your shipment of shoes.

Part 2: Shipping
1. Did you fill out and enclose the packing form? Make sure you do! We will notify you when the shoes have been received at our warehouse. The sender will receive a tax deductible receipt.

2. Tape your sturdy box of shoes up nice and tight and ship to our warehouse at:
