The overall goal is simple, if you don't want to walk in your shoes, please give them to someone who does.
In September 2010, Dr. Mary Carlson began her first shoe drive at a local street fair.
The tremendous community support and experience proved that there was an overwhelming need for this type of outreach service.
If you have a pair of new or lightly used shoes that you hardly wear, send them our way. We can give them a good home.
Please NO Boxes and make sure shoes are Untied.

That's the number of pairs of shoes we have donated, to date. This mission would not be possible without volunteers and support. Your time, donations, products and services help defer the costs of transportation, storage and the cleaning and disinfection of shoes. Your efforts and support are vital to our success and greatly appreciated. Help make this number bigger.

Shoes For All, a not for profit organization since 2010 formed by Dr. Mary Carlson Podiatrist of Williston Park Long Island will donate over 60 new pairs of baseball cleats and coaches cleats to the students of Principal Luis Eladio Torres, P.S. 55. The elementary school is located at 450 St. Paul Place South Bronx NY 10456. This event will provide an opportunity for the students from ages 8 to 10 to have much needed cleats to participate in athletic activities. Athletic teams foster teamwork, camaraderie and commitment. Shoes For All is happy to help these young boys participate in Americas favorite past time, baseball.
Shoes For all has been giving away new and lovely worn shoes for the past six years throughout Long Island and the five boughs. To date they have given away 48,000 pairs of shoes to poor and working poor families in need of this basic necessity. The overwhelming need for this type of outreach was and continues to be evident and Dr. Carlson continues to be the catalyst to those who had and give to those less fortunate.
SFA hopes to continue this partnership with P.S.55 and perhaps help other groups in need of footwear. Please visit us at www.shoesforall-sfa.com for more information.

It is because of the efforts of individuals such as [Dr. Carlson] we can continue to provide the necessary services to meet the needs of our clients and their families.
Because of your generous donation, an unemployed woman who is not able to afford professional clothing, will look and feel her best when going on what may be her first interview in months of job searching.
Your benevolence is most welcomed at a time when our economy continues to be in a dismal state.
You can rest assured that your shoes will be utilized by this and surrounding communities.
