Community

We are honored to get to work with these organizations who make our community a better place!

Share Our Shoes, also known as “SOS”, is a shoe charity dedicated to helping those in need. As a shoe charity we collect new or gently worn shoes and give them to someone in desperate need. Each pair of shoes gives someone in need a smile and a chance to walk comfortably and safely during their times of hardship. This is a great way to recycle shoes and help someone less fortunate. Without proper footwear they run the risk of infection and other health-related issues. Sometimes—in rare situations—cuts leading to serious infections can become fatal. This is the most compelling reason why footwear is so important.  "There are over 400 million kids without shoes in today's world” says Jennifer, Director of Share Our Shoes, "and at the same time, there are 1½ billion unused shoes sitting in American closets."

 

The purposes of the TrailHeads organization are to: promote the joy of trail running; support the efforts of members to maintain an active and healthy life style; listen, learn and internalize the lessons taught by our natural environment and wilder spaces; and organize and encourage efforts to enhance, extend, and maintain Nature's reach into the lives of each member of our greater community.
