Donate Shoes

Partner With Toyota – Donate Your Sneakers And Make A World Of Difference.

Donate your gently used, new or worn athletic shoes and help us reach our goal of filling a Toyota Tundra Truck with 2,600 pairs of shoes.

Presenting sponsor, Toyota, proudly announces an athletic shoe drive fundraiser, in partnership with Grandma’s Marathon and Sneakers4Funds. The funds raised from the collection will benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF), which is the charitable arm of Grandma’s Marathon. The primary focus of the YAF is to promote the growth and health of young athletes. The athletic footwear collected through the Sneakers4Funds shoe drive will help micro-enterprises in developing nations, such as Haiti, which is the most impoverished country in the Western Hemisphere.
