Nike Reuse-A-Shoe Drive
Don't throw your old athletic shoes in the trash. Bring them to Ridge United Methodist Church, 8607 Columbia Ave., Munster, instead. For the entire month of August, Ridge will once again be a Nike Reuse-A-Shoe collection site. Place as many worn out shoes as possible into the specially marked bins located outside each church entrance, and the Ridge Church Environmental Missions Team will sort them and send them to Nike, where the shoes will be recycled into material for playground surfaces, running tracks, football fields, basketball courts and more. Gently used shoes will be donated to those in need in our local community. Only athletic shoes will be accepted - no cleats, dress shoes, sandals or flip-flops.
