Hopkinton High School Girl Scout Troop 65294 is holding an athletic shoe drive in coordination with GotSneakers?. Gently worn, used, and new sneakers are being collected and sent to GotSneakers, a social enterprise, whose work helps to repurpose sneakers instead of throwing them away. Anyone can help by simply donating gently worn, used, and new sneakers.

GotSneakers? has developed a program that asks communities to reach into their closets! The sneaker recycling program helps keep sneakers out of landfills, which has harmful effects on our environment. Learn more about GotSneakers? by visiting their website at www.GotSneakers?.com.

Troop 65294 is pleased to be partnering with the local community by having donation bins located at Jump Start Physical Therapy (Natick), PR Running (Westboro), and Resilience Fitness (Hopkinton). The Troop also has donation boxes at the following drop-off locations around Hopkinton for any donations: 8 Price Street,1 Ledgestone Drive, 31 Valleywood Road and 4 Belknap Street (Westboro).

In addition to these donation locations, we are excited to be collecting donations at the Timlin 5K Road Race, which will held be in person again this year at the Hopkinton High School on Saturday June 18th. Athletic shoe donations can be dropped off at the GotSneakers? table between 8:30am - 12pm on race day. For more information, feel free to contact Carolyn Johnson.
