The Gateway Center of Montrey County, Inc. is looking for shoe donations.  They will accept any kind of shoes for this fundraiser.  The center will receive 40 cents per pound of shoes collected. These shoes will then be shipped to a 3rd world country where they are repurposed.  Nothing gets thrown away!  They either fix the shoes or tear them apart and repurpose the pieces.  They even go so far as to melt down the soles of the shoes to fix other shoes.  The Gateway Center says it's a win win situation.
