If Spring cleaning revealed you have more shoes than you know what to do with, you can put them to good use with the Grandma's Marathon annual shoe drive.

Grandma's Marathon has partnered once again with Toyota for the local shoe drive, which runs from Friday, June 7 through Monday, June 24 across the Northland.

You can drop off gently used shoes of any variety during business hours at the following Toyota dealerships:

  • Kolar Toyota in Duluth
  • Kari Toyota in Superior
  • Iron Trail Toyota in Virginia
  • Ashland Toyota in Ashland, WI

During Grandma’s Marathon weekend, there will be a Toyota Tundra truck in the Toyota display area located in Pioneer Hall at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 20, and from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, June 21.  The goal will be to fill the bed of that truck with donated shoes.

Goodwill Industries of Duluth will assist in collection of all the shoes for either resale in their retail stores or reuse on the secondary market.
