Salvation Army Donates Shoes

Feb 11, 2013 -- 7:44am

An event held by an area organization over the weekend was a big success. 

After collecting for only one month, the Salvation Army on Ridge Street opened its doors Saturday morning for the annual shoe drive to a long line of community members waiting to shop. 

Organizers say about 3,500 gently worn pairs of shoes were donated. 

Any leftover shoes will be used in one way or another -- whether shipped to a developing country or the rubber being used elsewhere. Organizers say they make sure every extra shoe is used for something.
