Give your old shoes a new life

Give your old shoes a new life

The JCC of Paramus/Congregation Beth Tikvah is participating in the Shoe Box Recycling program. A box for donations is in the synagogue lobby; items will be accepted during weekday and Sunday shul hours. August is “athletic shoe” month; the shul will earn more for recycled athletic sneakers and non-metal cleats.

Shoe Box Recycling is a for-profit shoe recycler. Every pair of shoes collected is distributed for resale and reuse in its original form at various marketplaces around the world.

Paired, usable men’s, women’s, and kids’ shoes can be donated if they have no holes in the soles and are not wet or mildewed. Unacceptable shoes include ski and heavy winter boots, roller skates and roller blades, ice skates, flip flops, Crocs, bedroom slippers, and single shoes.

Proceeds from the shoe collection will benefit JCCP/CBT projects. For information, call (201) 262-7691 or go to
