Donating Orthopaedic Shoes: Yes You Can

Hi everyone! Now’s the time of year when we see all types of donation bins around town. One was placed at my local YWCA. It was for shoe donations. Seeing that I’ve been wearing an external 1.5” shoe lift for over 35 years, I didn’t think donating orthopaedic shoes applied. But, I inquired anyways.

It turns out that there are people with leg length discrepancies in need of shoes with lifts. This never occurred to me, for whatever reason. Maybe it’s because I very rarely see anyone wear a lift of this size. Here’s the story…

I was in the locker room last week. The lady next to me complimented me on my shoe lift (how often does that happen?? NOT MUCH!). She stated that her daughter has MS and needs a shoe lift, but cannot afford it. The mom had never seen a “real life” shoe lift. She was fascinated. She started asking me all types of questions. She seemed relieved to see a possible solution to your daughter’s dilemma. It turns out that her daughter walks around in great pain and discomfort wearing “ordinary” shoes. The lady then went on to explain that there are many adults and kids looking for orthopedic footwear they otherwise cannot afford.

That got me to thinking. I went to the front desk and inquired as to whether the involved shoe donation site would be interested in shoes with lifts on them. I have been accumulating them for years. She excitedly stated, “I’m sure they would!”

There are a number of shoe donation sites available online. Most seem to focus on sending shoes to underprivileged nations. I’m all for supporting each other as much as possible. However, why not donate shoes to your local community? There are many who can use the help. And…if you take your shoe donation to the site yourself, you’ll know your shoes are actually going to where you want them to go. (There’s something fishy about some online donation sites that just doesn’t settle well with me.)

Anyways, instead of discarding or storing your unused orthopedic shoes…consider donating them to a worthy cause. You’ll be helping someone in need, while freeing up landfills or closet space.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share..Thanks!
