Shoe Battle 2020!



It was an amazing opportunity to participate in the Shoe Battle of 2020! This phenomenal program collects shoes for the shoeless youths of Salem. Because everyone should have a pair of shoes, right?! If you have a pair of shoes you’d like to donate, you still can! Contact Laurie Casarez of the City of Salem at or 503-530-2321

This drive started in 2012, partnering with the City of Salem’s Youth Development Program and South Salem High School Advanced Via Individual Determination (AVID) class. This program now invites schools, businesses, churches, nonprofits, local government, and the general public to help donate and inspire young individuals to live healthy active lives!
