Wichita group accumulating footwear to boost cash for meals

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) – Starting Tuesday, ICT Food Rescue will accept donations for new or used shoes so that they can use the money to feed the hungry and improve local literacy. As an added bonus, the donated shoes end up one less thing in our landfill.

The organization said the mission was to “fill stomachs, not citing landfills”.

“We all have additional shows, and we all have – many of us have families and children. I have seven children. We always go through shoes and we keep growing out of them. This is a great opportunity to get the most out of these shoes, ”said

If you’d like to donate to the cause, you can donate by doing it at KANSEL Campus, 1650 N. Fairview, Wichita, Kan. 67203. The organization is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will accept donations until September 2nd.
