WAIF Holiday Shoe Drive

by WAIF 24th November 2017

Need to get rid of your dog walking, running, or dress shoes? We’ll take them for our Holiday Shoe Drive! From November 1st to December 31st, the locations listed below will take your donated gently-used shoes that we can turn into cash for WAIF animals!


Our goal is to fill 100 bags of 25 pairs of shoes each to raise a minimum of $1000 (for every pair donated, WAIF receives .40 each). Shoes then will be picked up and shipped to developing countries such as Haiti where the main mode is transportation is by foot. This means shoes need to be gently-used with no holes in soles, have laces (if required), soles falling off or too worn, broken heels, moldy or wet shoes, and most importantly still have life left in them so they can be of use to the person in need. Any questions? Please feel free to call (360) 678-8906 or send an email here.

I’ve always loved to fly. I grew up in a family of pilots – my dad was a bush pilot in Alaska and his brother, my uncle Don, retired as a 747 pilot. They built kit planes growing up, and I inherited that same fascination with flying.

Winter is just around the corner, and it’s time to think about cold weather safety; specifically hypothermia. Hypothermia is a dangerous drop in body temperature, usually caused by prolonged exposure to cold temperatures.
