The Springfield Running Center is now a drop center for individuals like you to donate your running shoes and help those in need around the world.


We need the ‘gently worn’ shoes taking up space in your closet. It is estimated that Americans have 1.5 billion pairs of unworn shoes lying in their closets. We can use each and every one of these pairs to make a tangible difference in someone’s life.

Round up shoes from your closets, bind each pair together with rubber bands and drop them at the Springfield Running Center. We will sort the shoes and categorize them based on gender, size, and type. Then when one of our relief partners expresses a need for the shoes, we will be able to fill that ‘order’ with your footwear!
