Citizenville - Environmentality Sharing Shoes: Sneaker Drive & Pickup
Environmentality, a local recycle pickup group, is teaming up with SOUL to kickoff a curbside pick up of gently used shoes on their regular recycle pickup route. All donated shoes will go to SOUL, nonprofit assisting individuals across Jackson who are affected by homelessness, as part of their "Sole to SOUL" program.
Environmentality and SOUL were two of the six community projects to pitch their organizations at Citizenville's inaugural JXN Gumbo held on March 22. "We were so excited when we heard these two groups found synergy within their missions to get even more good done right here in Jackson," said JJ Townsend, founder of Citizenville.
Led by Karrissa Bowley, there are two opportunities to donate shoes. On May 2nd Environmentality will curbside pickup shoes on their regular recycle pickup route (see coverage area below). Citizenville will have a dropoff box at the next JXN Gumbo event on May 10th for residents who live outside Environmentality's coverage area.
