The RichWay Shoe Drive Initiative

Our Mission

The Richway is taking a stand, and is driven to make an Impact Locally, Globally, and Environmentally . If there is a need in your community or organization, we want to deliver a solution to any problem. By hosting a shoe drive, you can create community engagement, provide new opportunities for those in need,  AND have a positive impact on the environment. Locally, we are exposed to many issues.  Instead of assuming we can't help, instead believe that  WE CAN BE THE SOLUTION! 

Why Have a Sneaker Drive?

You make a positive impact, simply by collecting unwanted gently-used, wearable sneakers!

The Richway offers $1.00 for every pair of wearable sneakers collected through our social fundraising program. The more sneakers you collect, the more you earn!

Food banks, homelessness, domestic violence, Battered woman’s shelters, college scholarships. These are problems that can be solved with a local shoe drive. 

Our Vision

The shoes you no longer want, create opportunities many people need.

Everyday: children are prevented from attending school, adults are unable to work, and walking becomes unbearable. A new pair of shoes provides relief in many developing nations, around the globe.  Relief is given in times of disaster, and helps bridge the economic gap in the United States and Canada.

In many developing nations, walking is the primary mode of transportation. Every day millions are exposed to unsanitary conditions, that lead to diseases. These diseases may lead to sickness, even death. They also keep children out of school -  leaving them without an education, and continuing the cycle of poverty. More than 600 million people worldwide don’t even own a pair of shoes. With your help, we can provide a life-changing solution: with a good pair of shoes.

Saving the Environment:
In the United States, at least 200 million pairs of shoes and sneakers end up in landfills, each year. Shoes in landfills can take 30 to 40 years to decompose.

Here's The Good News

Did you know that most of our unwanted footwear can be reused, and that 100% of them can be recycled? Make an impact today with THE RICHWAY SHOE DRIVE.
