During May, Mast Store asks that you join the community as we reach out into our communities and fill a need: Shoes.
A pair of shoes may mean little to those who have so many, but to others, even one single pair can mean everything. And donating to those in need can mean the same to you. So, if you’ve “Kondo’d” your closets, or spring cleaned them, and you have some shoes that didn’t quite spark your joy but are still in good condition, bring them to any Mast Store location. Mast is accepting gently worn shoes that still have some miles left on them, and needs all styles and varieties. From gym shoes to dress casual to business appropriate, shoes can span all types for all genders, ages, and uses.
Connect the shoes into pairs via a rubber band or by tying the laces together and drop them off the local Mast Store.
Mast will have a little help distributing all these shoes. Each store has partnered with a local community-centered non-profit organization to reach as many folks as possible.
The store in Columbia will distribute shoes via the Transitions Homeless Center where folks can go from the streets to self-reliance with a hand up.
