Life & the amazing gifts it shares. Gary, I donโ€™t know his last name gave me a bid on refurbishing a vintage iron sink from our Share Your Soles Foundation building. Its been around and abused for ages. After learning about our mission and talking with me he took the job. Today he finished and donated his service, time, materials and talent. WHY? Gary is sn ex con. He did hard time and is now setting up to โ€œteachโ€ his trade to others who traveled down the wrong path when they were young like he did.
True definition of โ€œgiving backโ€.
I like Gary and hope he and I can become friends. We are grateful and appreciative to know this guy! Gary is his name! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

When it comes to extreme poverty on Native American reservations, the American government plays a heavy role. The Indian Removal Act forced Native Americans west in 1830. It divided tribes onto reservations out West, which contained very poor land and mandated rationed resources from the government. As a result, many Native Americans plunged into poverty almost instantly.

Jackson who is a 15 year old amazing young man brought in 150 pairs of shoes he collected for the less fortunate. This is his third year contributing. Most kids do a service project because they need service hours to graduate. His parents raised him with good values, morals and compassion. I asked him what motivated him to keep it going. His response โ€œbecause it is the right thing to doโ€.

As a retailer, we have no problem in admitting we arenโ€™t perfect in reducing our carbon footprint but we try to lead by example. From the small things such as recycling paper and cardboard in our stores, to replacing our plastic kitchenware, to switching to compostable cups at our Fleet Feet Hydration Stations on the lakefront. Our biggest effort came in 2000, when Fleet Feet became one of Share Your Solesโ€™ first drop zones.โฃ
โฃ
We stopped by the Share Your Soles warehouse, which is apart of the Historic Pullman District. We talked to Mona about how she relies on all of her relationships such as her sponsorship with American Airlines to make a bigger impact on communities.โฃ
โฃ
Currently, Mona is organizing her efforts to help with the Hurricane Dorian disaster relief in The Bahamas. We accept gently used shoe donations at all of our Fleet Feet Chicago locations.
โฃ
๐Ÿ“ธ:
Be a superhero and share your gently used shoes at any of the CW26 Chicago/ The Jam TV Show drop locations at our clubs around the city to help support Share Your Soles Foundation & bring shoes to those in need around the world!

FFC's Austin Head shares more with Carly Henderson - check out the video for details on the program below!
