Singapore, 7th March 2016 – Do you have usable footwear gathering dust in your shoe cabinet? Donate the shoes and sandals you no longer wear to those who need them. From 11th March to 10th April 2016, Clarks will be supporting The Salvation Army’s humanitarian work by holding a shoe donation drive at their retail stores. Shoes collected during the one month’s effort will be donated to The Salvation Army. As an added incentive, Clarks offers donors a 30% discount when purchasing a brand new pair of Clarks shoes.

The aim of the shoe donation drive is to collect pre-loved shoes that are still in good and wearable conditions and make them available to people in need of shoes.

Are you a shoe hoarder?

Our survey on shoe shopping habits reveals that many Singaporeans are hoarding footwear they don’t use but can’t bear to part with. The reasons are familiar - problems discarding possessions, sentimental feelings, imagining finding a use for them sometime, or just putting off spring-cleaning.

Here’s your chance to put your shoe hoard to good use. Your reward: knowing those shoes that stay tucked in a corner can be put to good use by donating them to charity. A pair of used sports shoes may enable an underprivileged child to properly participate in sports activities and a pair of flats might be the perfect gift for someone who only has slippers to wear. Plus, recycling is always a better option than discarding resources, explains Clarks’ Assistant Marketing Manager, Ms Amber Or.

Donating to Those In Need is Easy

Donating your pre-loved shoes to Clarks can help the Earth and the less fortunate! Clarks will accept all types of shoes: athletic, running, dress, sandals, pumps, heels, work boots, cleats, dance, flats and wedges, just as long as they are still good and wearable.
