Throughout the year we host several events and fundraisers to continue supporting the community through our breakfast program. Check out our social media pages for regular updates of events and fundraisers.
Anchorage Breakfast Program has partnered with Community Recycling through their ShoeBox Recycling program. Together we are on a mission to help promote the importance of shoe recycling while raising money to help keep Anchorage funded. ShoeBox Recycling is easy, engaging and rewarding for everyone involved.
Participating is simple. We are collecting gently used shoes for reuse, meaning all shoes we collect are destined for a new home. From South America and Africa to areas right here in the United States, our ShoeBox Recycling efforts will go to help people in over 50 countries.
Our local community also benefits from this program. Not only will your recycled shoes help Anchorage Breakfast Program raise funds, it will also help keep usable shoes out of our local landfills. ShoeBox Recycling also gives us a chance to connect with the people and places that receive our recycled shoes. By writing a SoleMate Note to include with your donated shoes, you can let the new owner know about where they came from, what they were used or even any special memories attached to them. In return, they can write back to us and we can make a SoleMate connection.
So start cleaning out your closets and start looking under your bed for gently used shoes. Every pair you recycle means extra funds for us, less landfill waste and the potential to connect us to a SoleMate!
