Give Your Shoes the Boot With ABJDocs!

Save Lives with Advanced Bone & Joint by Giving Your Shoes the Boot!

Bring your used shoes to 112 Piper Hill Drive, Suite 9, St. Peters, MO 63376 on/from July 1-31, 2014 from 8:30AM-4:30PM and, Advanced Bone and Joint with Shoeman Water Projects will turn your shoes into clean drinking water! Why water?

Once collected, the shoes are exported to street vendors in places like Kenya, Haiti and South America for resale.  The street vendors receive shoes for resale and people in those communities can purchase shoes for pennies on the dollar.  Funds from exporting the shoes goes to purchasing well drilling rigs, water purification systems, and other supplies to bring clean, fresh water to communities in need around the world.

Having collected over 2 million pairs of shoes since August of 2008, the non-profit Shoeman Water Projects has sent four water drilling rigs to Kenya and teams to Haiti to assemble water purification systems and repair pumps.

To participate, gather all the shoes you don’t wear anymore and rubber band or tie them together.  Bring your shoes to our drop-off bin at Advanced Bone and Joint.  We accept any kind of shoes as long as they don’t have holes.

For more information about the Advanced Bone & Joint shoe drive contact Therese Ferguson at therese.ferguson@abjdocs.com 

Please join us in helping others Live Their Life.
