Ruud, Ward encourage sneaker donations


The Women’s Center of Mid-Minnesota, Sen. Carrie Ruud and Rep. John Ward encourage residents to donate their unwanted sneakers to benefit the Women’s Center of Mid-Minnesota and Sexual Assault Services.

All shoes are valuable. Shoes that are used, but not used up, will be given to individuals in need. Shoes with holes will be recycled and the Women’s Center of Mid-Minnesota will receive 50 cents per pound for recycled shoes.
