We need all sizes for women, men, boys, girls, toddler and infants. Childrens slippers can be soft soled. We need children size 13/1, 2/3 and 4/5 sized slippers, these are for children ages 5 and older.

Kohl's, Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Meijer all have great deals. Women sizes Medium and Large are the most common sizes requested by the shelters.
Do you prefer monetary donations or slippers?
We accept both! However we prefer monetary donations so we can purchase slippers and ship them directly to the shelters. 100% of donations are used to purchase new slippers for the shelters.
