GotSneakers Details

What
Sneaker collection! Donate your old sneakers, regardless of condition. We take used cleats as well (no metal cleats), but no rain boots, heels, loafers, hiking boots. or any other non-athletic shoes.

Why
When we throw out sneakers, they fill up our landfills, take 30+ years to decompose, and leach harmful chemicals. GotSneakers sends good condition shoes to people who need them and recycles those that are in poor condition. Neponset Valley Humane Society gets a portion of the money GotSneakers raises through their recycling program, 100% of which we put toward helping area cats.

How

Drop off your old sneakers (only pairs, no singles) at one of our collection locations (see below) or call or email us for donation bags. You can use the bags to send back a bunch of sneakers at once. Collect more from friends and family. All the money we raise goes to provide food and medical services for the seniors, fosters, and community cats and kittens in our care.


Bags have prepaid shipping labels (there is no cost to you to ship the bags back). You can fit between 10 and 14 pairs in each bag, depending on size. Please return only full bags. Bags are self sealing, so no need for packing tape. Prepaid shipping labels are identified as being for either UPS or FedEx. Once the bags are full, seal them shut and drop them off at a UPS or FedEx location near you, as specified on the shipping label.

A few additional guidelines from GotSneakers:
Only sneakers/athletic shoes (no other shoes, heels, boots, etc.)
Pairs only – no singles
Pairs must be together/in the same bag – we aren’t given credit for non-paired sneakers that are not in the same bag. Helpful hint – tie the laces together or put an elastic band around pairs.

Where Drop your sneakers at any of these locations:
Stoughton: 69 Pinetree Rd.
Norwood: 150 Roosevelt Ave.
Norton: 14 E Hodges Street
W. Bridgewater: Solara Salon, 320 W. Center St
