OAK HILL - A chain of grocery stores across the state are inviting you to clean out your closet and donate any unwanted shoes to a good cause.
Kroger stores across West Virginia are combining their efforts to collect shoes for charities. Assistant Manager Stephanie Yearego at the Kroger in Oak Hill said this effort is headed by the Women's Edge group. After the collection is complete, the shoes will be distributed to charities in need and from there they will be given to children and families. The collection began on June 20th, but Kroger said they're still looking for more donations. Yearego said new and used adult and children shoes of any size are greatly appreciated.
"It started June 20th and it goes through the end of the month so well take any unwanted shoes. Any size, any type, and then in turn Kroger will donate them to another charitable donation,” said Yearego.
The collection will go through the end of July. To donate, go to your local Kroger and drop off unwanted shoes.
