LCSO Partners with GotSneakers & MADD Loudoun to Collect Sneakers

Loudoun County, VA-In the spirit of environmental and economic sustainability, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) has partnered with GotSneakers to help raise funds for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) of Loudoun. The request is simple: Clean out your closets of all unwanted adult and children’s paired sneakers and other footwear and bring them tied together before March 31, 2019, to one of the LCSO stations Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Headquarters - 803 Sycolin Road in Leesburg, VA 20177

Dulles South Public Safety Center - 25216 Loudoun County Pkwy, Chantilly, VA 20152

Eastern Loudoun Station - 46620 East Frederick Dr., Sterling, VA 20164

Ashburn Station – 20272 Savin Hill Dr., Ashburn, VA 20147

Western Loudoun Station - 47 W. Loudoun St, Round Hill, VA 20141

MADD Loudoun was founded in 1990 and it is run by volunteers that will use the funds raised to help fight against drunk driving and drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking. Throughout each year MADD Loudoun hosts Parent Workshops, participates in Sobriety Checkpoints, and attends DUI/DUID court cases trials to end drunk driving.

GotSneakers is a sneaker recycling organization and social fundraising platform, which will compensate MADD Loudoun for every pair of useable sneakers collected, regardless of the condition.

The LCSO will accept all styles and conditions of footwear. After the sneakers are collected, GotSneakers will process and distribute these sneakers around the world specifically within impoverished nations using micro-enterprise partners helping those in need. The sneakers that are damaged are processed and ground into surfaces for playgrounds, gym floors, tracks, outdoor courts, and synthetic turfs.
