Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 09:53 am

Stan’s Fit for your Feet will continue to host its “Shair-A-Pair” shoe drive for the remainder of February. It is the fifth year the company has partnered with local shelters and the national nonprofit organization Soles4Souls, which has been distributing more than 12.8 million pairs of shoes to needy people in countries all across the globe since 2004.
“We are grateful for the support this program has received the last four years and we are hoping to reach a new level of support for the shoe drive in 2011,” said Jim Sajdak, owner of Stan’s Fit For Your Feet. “We hope everyone will be inspired to come out and and donate their gently used shoes to those less fortunate here in Milwaukee and around the world.”
Since its inception, more than 75,000 pairs of new or gently used shoes have been donated to local shelters including Repairers of the Breach adult day shelter, Father Gene’s HELP Center in West Allis and Soles4Souls, Sajdak said.
“This is a really easy way to help Soles4Souls and Repairers of the Breach who are both doing incredible things for the less fortunate people in our world,” Sajdak said. “This is such an easy way to clear the clutter out of your closet, recycle and donate that pair of gently used shoes to a wonderful cause.”
Those interested can drop off shoes at Stan’s Brookfield Store, 17155 W. Bluemound Road, Stan’s Glendale store, 505 W. Silver Spring Drive, or Stan’s Greenfield store, 7405 W. Layton Ave. through Monday, Feb. 28.
Fans attending the Milwaukee Admirals games on Friday, Feb. 18 and Sunday, Feb. 20 can also bring shoes to a special drop-off location at the Bradley Center.
Individuals donating adult shoes will receive a $10 gift certificate towards footwear purchases during February, those donating children’s shoes will receive $5.
