Annual Shoe and Youth Clothing Drive

Look for these posters around Pittsburg, or drop off your items the morning of the race.

Once again this year… we will be conducting our Annual Shoe and Youth Clothing Drive.  The world is awash with refugees fleeing country conflicts and the demand has never been greater. We will again partner with the regional Southeast Kansas Recycling Inc. group. SEKR is a non-profit recycling organization that has provided comprehensive services for over 14 years to southeast Kansas. At their Pittsburg facility they accept virtually anything that can be recycled or reused including; paper, metals, plastics, clothes, e-waste, large bulky items and household hazardous waste.  The SEKR first circulates the collected items within the community thru their “Locals Helping Locals” program. The unsold/used items are then shipped to their vendor where the items are reprocessed for distribution to needy communities throughout the world.
