SRLA Cares Shoe Collection and Record Breaking Attempt

SRLA Cares is collecting used rubber-soled shoes to donate to Soles For Life,  a non-profit organization that collects shoes and sells them to an exporter. Help us reach our goal of collecting 26,200 pairs, which would break the Guinness World Record for “Most Shoes Collected for Recycling.”
