T he run specialty industry is responding quickly to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in the Houston area. Shoes for Houston is a relief effort by Fleet Feet Sports to collect new and gently-used shoes and new socks for those affected and displaced by Hurricane Harvey. Although Fleet Feet is spearheading this effort, the store group says it welcomes any donations by any store that would like to participate. Fleet Feet has asked that all donations be sent to: Fleet Feet Sports Attn: SHOE DONATIONS 7322 Jones Maltsberger Road, #152 San Antonio, TX 78209 Staff at the San Antonio location will work with staff at the Fleet Feet Sports locations in Houston to facilitate distribution of all collected items. When shipping gently-used pairs: • Tie shoes together • Label heels with gender and size (i.e. M9 or W10.5) When shipping all items: • If possible, please ship genders separated and label each box (men's, women's, or youth) • If you send apparel, please ship in a separate box marked "Apparel" If stores are looking for suggested social media copy, Fleet Feet has recommended the following: As part of a coordinated relief effort, stores across the country are now accepting donations of new or gently-used running shoes and new socks to send to running stores in Texas. @FleetFeetSports of Greater Houston and @FleetFeetSports San Antonio will work to get these shoes and socks to organizations and people in need. Our thoughts remain with the people, communities, and businesses affected by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding taking place in its aftermath. #shoesforhouston n Shoes for Houston Effort Underway 2 © 2017 Formula4media LLC.
