Wanted: New or Gently Used Shoes

Did you know Wildwood City Hall became a collection location for The infamous Shoeman Water Project? Donors can drop off shoes in the lobby.

Wildwood city officials want residents to know city hall is a donation site for The Shoeman Water Projects.

Shoeman Water Projects collects thousands of used and new shoes, which are then exported to roadside shoe vendors in Kenya, Haiti, and South America. The shoe vendors then have shoes to sell at affordable prices to people who might otherwise not be able to purchase them. Shoes protect the new owner's feet from foot abrasions and infections.

Funds generated from the export of shoes provide well drilling rigs, water purification systems, and hand pump repair. People who thirst, receive fresh drinking water. This effort is another great way to recycle!

Just one qualifying comment. Wildwood city operations are in the midst of moving from 183 Plaza Drive to 16860 Main Street (next to B&B Theater) this coming week and will reopen for business on Friday. Those who read this article and wish to donate their shoes should note the new address and the fact that offices will not be open until Friday of this coming week. Finally, Shoeman Water Project is a unique way to provide support to those that don't have basic services that we may take for granted.
