Shoe Drive Happening Now!

What: New Year, New You! Clean out your closet to do an ocean of good. Ocean Connections is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser to raise funds for our animal welfare and conservation efforts! Ocean Connections will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used, and new shoes collected. We are accepting all styles of shoes including gym shoes, heels, and boots, but cannot accept any shoes with holes in them.  All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners in developing countries. By donating gently worn, used, and new shoes to Ocean Connections, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people's lives around the world.
When: December 31st - February 28th
Where: Anyone can help by dropping gently worn, used, and new shoes into the collection bins located at the Milwaukee County Zoo Walk-In Gate (located on Bluemound Road)
