Vienna Shoe Collection
Veronica Lees organised this shoe drive and she tells us:
We had a shoe drive within our company over one week and took athletic shoes for Men, Women and Children. We filled 4 big boxes and collected about 50-60 pairs of shoes. We delivered the mens and womens athletic shoes to a homeless shelter called the Gruft (The Crypt) http://www.gruft.at/
The rest of the shoes we donated to the Charity Caritas who cover a large range of people in need, from homeless, refugees and the elderly. In this case they will be distributed among their women and childrens shelters around Vienna. https://www.caritas.at/
We are still getting emails from people who forgot and so I have another box set up to keep collecting until our next official drive in the fall! It was such a joy and you guys were really my inspiration to start really putting a bigger effort towards giving back.
Thank you Veronica for spreading the love!
