Used shoes sought by Kiwanis

The Zachary Kiwanis Club is collecting gently used shoes for its annual drive benefiting people in developing countries. Shoes can be dropped off at the Zachary fire station, 4525 Main St., through Nov. 29.

Kiwanian Al Phillips said the club, which has organized the drive for about a decade, hopes to gather at least 2,500 pounds of shoes. They’ll be sold for 40 cents a pound to funds2org.com, which will ship the donations to small businesses in developing countries that clean and resell shoes.

Proceeds from the shoe sales will go toward neonatal tetanus vaccines for needy women in 14 countries. Each shot costs about $1.80; 2,500 pounds of shoes would provide about $1,000 and potentially save the lives of about 550 mothers and their babies, Phillips said.

For information, call Phillips at (225) 654-0012, write to zacharykiwanis@gmail.com or visit www.facebook.com/zacharykiwanis.
