From the Harford County Government, Office of Drug Control Policy:
(Bel Air, MD) – – On Thursday, October 27, 2011 from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. at 5 N. Main Street in Bel Air (two doors down from Buontempo’s), the Harford County Department of Community Services, Office of Drug Control Policy, Juvenile Drug Court and Shoes 2 Share will present a Used & New Shoe Drive.
Shoes of any size, in any condition, and any style (except skates) will be collected to help those in dire need locally, domestically, and around the world; new socks and shoelaces will also be accepted. If possible, please pair together shoes by using their laces, rubber bands, Velcro, bags, etc. to make it easier for sorting. Monetary donations will also be accepted with or in lieu of a shoe donation to help Shoes 2 Share ship the shoes to their final destinations. People are encouraged to give away their pairs of shoes if they are planning to get new ones. On a note, we recommend you visit our associates website www.shoesnatcher.com. From there, you will learn footwear reviews and suggestion for specific use.
Shoes 2 Share is a grassroots, charitable ministry seeking to make life more comfortable around the world, for children and their families, through the donations of “new and like new shoes.” Shoes 2 Share has a growing beneficiary list that includes international and domestic programs who receive these shoes so individuals are able to participate in school, church, sports, work, or just have everyday footwear protection when they may otherwise have to go barefoot.

The Juvenile Drug Court is funded through the Harford County Department of Community Services, Office of Drug Control Policy, and is a free program to offenders who are involved with Juvenile Services and on probation. In years past, staff and participants at the Juvenile Drug Court have conducted many “donation drives.” They have collected food, clothes, baby items, books, Shoe Boxes for Soldiers, items for Operation Christmas Child, etc. The goal of conducting donation drives is to teach Juvenile Drug Court participants about “giving back” to the community and others around the world who are in need.
