Shoebox Recycling with Anixter Cares

Import/export coordinator Jenny Murtz helped facilitate a “gently used” shoe drive at our Glenview location to benefit Shoebox Recycling, a not-for-profit recycling organization that puts wearable shoes in the hands (and on the feet) of those in need — from Arizona to Zimbabwe.

Shoe donations for people in need

Murtz has been collecting shoes since 2009, as part of a broader sustainable practices initiative that is tied to the JPMorgan Corporate Challenge, a 3.5 mile road race held each year through the streets of downtown Chicago. We'd like to thank athletics products retailer Dick Pond Athletics, local to Glenview, for facilitating the drive and accepting our shoe donations for delivery to Shoebox Recycling.
