Shoes For Water - WaterStep



Donate shoes. Save lives.


Here's how it works:




By donating your new and gently used shoes to WaterStep, you’ll help fund safe drinking water projects all over the world — projects that help to save hundreds of thousands of lives each year. In addition to funding water projects, donated shoes keep hundreds of tons of waste out of our landfills. We accept all types of shoes from high heels to high tops. Shoes are sold to an exporter and funds received help bring clean water to those in need.

Host a shoe drive, or just clean out your closet.


Start a shoe drive and provide safe water to someone that needs it.  Be sure to check out our shoe drive kit - it has tips for a successful drive and promotional materials to help you spread the word. Can't host a shoe drive? No problem! You can also make individual shoe donations at drop sites around Kentucky, Indiana, and Delaware.
