Green Sneakers organization wants clean tennis shoes


Essentia Health accepting sneaker donations

Essentia Health St. Joseph’s Medical Center Auxiliary is collecting clean tennis shoes during the month of April. Your old sneakers are worth more than you think; they become reused as affordable footwear for people in need around the world. Shoes are sent to Green Sneakers, an organization that sends them to third world countries in need of footwear.
