Annual KSAT Community ‘Share the Shoes’ drive continues with SAPD this holiday season

Donate new shoes to SAPD substations through Tuesday, Nov. 30

Drop off any new shoes at any SAPD substation in San Antonio through Nov. 30.

SAN ANTONIO – A good pair of shoes is a need we often take for granted and for so many children in San Antonio that need is real.

In 2020, KSAT Community collected 2,070 pairs of shoes for kids in need and this year the annual Share the Shoes drive is back.

KSAT Community is continuing its effort to make sure kids have proper footwear by teaming up with the San Antonio Police Department to collect new shoes of all sizes for toddlers and teenagers.

All of the shoes donated will benefit local nonprofit Good Samaritan Community Services in December just in time for the holidays.

“The San Antonio Police Department is excited to once again be part of the ‘Share the Shoes’ drive benefitting the Good Samaritan,” said a representative for SAPD. “Every day our officers encounter citizens in need. Unfortunately, many times, the need for shoes is great. The Good Samaritan is a local organization that has graciously helped many of our victims and their families. We look forward to this partnership and we are grateful to the citizens of San Antonio for their gracious donations.”

KSAT12's Tiffany Huertas reports live on the Share the Shoes donation event taking place now until No. 30.
