"Many More Miles" collecting shoes for homeless

For the 14th consecutive year, Baldwin Bone & Joint, P.C. will once again host this community project.

They're partnering with the Port City Pacers, USA Student Recreation Center and McCoy Outdoor Company to collect shoes for the homeless outreach programs of Wings of Life and Discovery Ministries.

Response to the campaign has grown since its inception from 200 pairs donated in 2003 to 1,899 pairs contributed in 2016.

With the kick-off beginning the month of January each year, donations for 2017 are now being accepted with final shoe drop-offs received at the 2017 Azalea Trail Run on Saturday, March 25th.

Mobile and Baldwin county elementary students will also, once again, be given the opportunity to collect shoes and earn money for their schools' P.E. programs.

BaldwinBone & Joint will award cash prizes to the individual P.E. programs for the top three schools donating the most shoes.

So clean up those gently used athletic shoes, tie them together in pairs, and drop them off at any of the following locations:

-Baldwin Bone & Joint

-Dr. Glenn Glass

-McCoy Outdoor Company

-The University of South Alabama Student Recreation Center

-The 2017 Azalea Trail Run Expo on March 25th.
