If you've followed the Shoeman's journeys, you know why shoe drives are important. The Shoeman, a retired Marine, wants your shoes and he wants them today! The organization he formed re-sells shoes to other countries for a small profit. All proceeds go to buying and installing new wells, water filtration systems and other items in Kenya. Every twenty seconds, a child dies in Kenya from consuming unclean drinking water.

So, start cleaning out your closets and drop off those neglected unloved shoes at Virginia Commerce Bank located at 2401 Mount Vernon Avenue! You have until November 20th to donate. In the mean time you can check out the Shoeman's website and learn more about the man, the myth, the legend and the project he has created.
