In coordination with the Light Foundation and the Green Sneakers organization, the American Red Cross Darke County Chapter are collecting used sneakers, which will then Green Sneakers using their network will be re-using and repurposing the sneakers. So not only do we keep items out of landfills, but to encourage collections, the Green Sneaker organization gives .50 cents a pound to partner non-profits. So clean out those closets, sneak out your spouse’s nasty gardening shoes, raid your kids closet and bring all your SNEAKERS to the Darke County Chapter office at 130 Martz Street, suite 6, Greenville, OH 45331. Any sneaks will do, condition does not matter, but they must be of a sneaker type. They must be turned in by July 24th or after that, you’ll just have to wear them for another year.
