Shoeman Water Shoes
Community Service Patch Program

Watch this educational video of the creation of the water well from the donation of your shoes:

Official site of the Shoeman Water Shoes:

This is a great project. Your used shoes can create water for the families and communities in Kenya, South America, and Haiti.

Why should we collect shoes?

  • The secondhand shoes are a valuable product for street vendors to sell at affordable prices.
  • Funds generated from the selling of the shoes provide well drilling rigs, water purification systems, and hand pump repair. People who thirst receive fresh drinking water.
  • The people that purchase the shoes are those who do not have shoes and cannot afford to purchase new shoes.
  • The shoes protect the new owner’s feet from foot abrasions, parasites and mites.

How Can You Help?

You can bring shoes to the shoeless and water to the thirsty by making a shoe donation.

Follow the below patch program to earn your patch.

1) Host a Shoe Drive or collect within your group! Use the easy online form to request a shoe drive kit, print a donation tax receipt for your records, and get started today!

2) Start collecting your change or have a donation jar at your shoe drive to pay for the postage to mail the shoes to Missouri. You can also choose to donate a portion of your group funds to pay for the postage. If you live in Missouri, drop them off at one of the local drop offs.

3) Collect the shoes from family and friends. Gather the shoes you no longer wear and pair them by tying laces together or putting a rubber band around them.

4) Make sure the shoes you collect are in good condition. The shoes must be in good condition without holes. No dirt on the shoes.

Any style of shoe is needed – from high heels to tennis shoes to flip flops.
