GotSneakers? We want them!

We are partnering with GotSneakers?

Our local hero and student board member, Zach Thorpe, is leading the charge to collect used sneakers and closed toed shoes to help keep them out of the landfills and raise money to benefit all SMFCSD students.

Our next shoe collection will be April 19 - 26, 2024

If you would like to drop off shoes before our next sneaker drive, please email

We collected 110 pairs of shoes on the
November 20-28, 2023 at San Mateo Main Library!

So far we have collected over 900 pairs of shoes and raised over $17,000!

Together We Can Do It!


Join Zach and his team of local student heroes collecting shoes.  

Everyone is welcome to join the fight to save the planet from old shoes in the landfill.
