Put Your Best Foot Forward

We’ve discovered a very worthwhile way to raise funds to renovate the Port Orford Community Center—an Athletic Shoe Drive! It’s easy, just check out your closets for new or gently worn athletic shoes you no longer need or want. Then put them in any one of the  colorful drop boxes around Port Orford: Port Orford Public Library, TJ’s Restaurant, Melba’s Beauty Parlor, and Buddha’s Wellness Center.

Ask your friends, family and neighbors to donate their shoes—only athletic ones please! All kinds and sizes of athletic shoes are welcome, from kids to adults, from old fashioned tennis to latest jogging footwear. We are working with Angel Bins, a company that recycles, washes and exports the shoes to people who need them. Get foot loose and help build the Port Orford Community Center Complex. We have topped $100,000 toward our $1.5 million goal. We are on our way, and you can help by putting your best foot forward.
