Shoes sent around the world to fulfill multiple needs

You may not think of your shoes as anything more than something to wear on your feet, but for one local organization, it’s a chance to help those less fortunate. The Rogue Community Theater wrapped up their shoe drive last weekend which spanned four months. Manager of the Rogue Theater Lola DeVillers engineered the shoe drive after finding out about a company that helps nonprofit organizations with fundraising initiatives. The Rogue Theater was able to collect a small share of money for the shoes while helping people in third world countries not only get shoes on their feet but also use the shoes as an opportunity to educate themselves on business and entrepreneurship through distribution. 



The shoe drive goal was to get 2500 pairs of shoes to send, and the Rogue Theater ended up with about 2700. In the last week, DeVillers says the donations started to really pile up. 



DeVillers says the success of the shoe drive shows Door County’s giving and caring nature. As the shoe drive wraps up, the Rogue Theater is looking ahead to their next show on Friday.
