Shoe Drive Fundraiser (2020-21)


Now – February 18

Do you have shoes in your closet that are in good shape that you don’t wear? We are asking everyone to donate their gently used and new shoes that aren’t worn much. The Museum will receive funds from our partner organization Funds2Orgs based on the number of shoes we receive. Our goal is 100 bags with 25 pairs of shoes per bag. The shoes are used to create micro-enterprises in developing nations, where money raised from the shoes can care for families. 

We can accept any style of shoe except specialty athletic shoes like skates, cycling shoes or ski boots. Formal, casual, sandals, and tennis shoes, are all acceptable.

Shoes can be dropped off in the bins located in the courtyard at the Museum of Chincoteague Island, 7125 Maddox Blvd., or at Shore Post Parcel and Business Center, 4019 Main St.
