Running LA? Then Donate Your Shoes!

0 Comments 16 March 2011

According to the Business Leaders Task Force on Homeless report,¬†“Home For Good”, there are 48,000 homeless on any given night in Los Angeles County.

I guess you could say we have 48,000 reasons to be focused on collecting shoes at this years Honda LA Marathon presented by K-Swiss.  With over 30,000 runners and 100,000 or more visiting the expo we hope to collect an incredible amount of shoes that will be donated to Union Rescue Mission.

Here’s how it breaks down:

San Fernando Valley – 3,618 homeless

West LA – 5.538 homeless

South Bay – 7,863 homeless

South LA – 8,514 homeless

East LA – 4,517 homeless

Central LA – 11,093 homeless

San Gabriel Valley – 3,924 homeless

Antelope Valley – 2,419

The time to donate is NOW. LA needs your shoes! Donate at LA Marathon this weekend! Here’s where.

Los Angeles is one of the greatest cities in the world. Let’s make sure we help take care of those calling it home, even if they don’t have one.

Thank you.
