Do you have old athletic shoes lying around or that the kids have outgrown? Take them to Fitness Sports, 7230 University Avenue, Windsor Heights (fitnesssports.com) and they will give them to the homeless in the Des Moines area!
Shoes too worn to give away? Turn your old sports shoes into places to play through Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program. Any brand of athletic shoe accepted (sorry, no shoes with metal or flip-flops, please). Bring them to the Nike Factory Store, 7105 Mills Civic Parkway, West Des Moines, and visit nikereuseashoe.com to see the recycling process in action!
