There are several ways to partnering with America in Action
One way is to organize a shoe and clothing drive within your organization. Contact us regarding the dates of your drive. On the appointed day, once you’ve collected used shoes, clothing and other items we accept in plastic bags, we will send out a truck to pick up everything your organization has collected. We pay for every pound of shoes, clothing and other items collected.
The second way is by hosting a large bin and/or the smaller shoe collection bin on a long term basis. The bins are decorated with your artwork and advertise the mission of your organization. American in Action provides the bin free to you, and we maintain the look and integrity of the bin.
Finally, we also have our Shoe Box Program. We provide you boxes to collect worn, wearable shoes. When your boxes are full of more than 60 lbs. of shoes we will arrange for pick-up of the box(es) at no cost to you. Once received, we send you a check for the shoes collected.
America in Action is servicing 100 locations in Georgia: Gwinnett, Cobb, Fulton, Dekalb, Hall and Clayton County. We run regular routes to check on the bins and collect the contents.
We have a toll free number which will be answered in case there are any issues with items left around the bin, damage to the bin, or keys or cell phones dropped in the bin (it happens). Should you decide you no longer wish to host a bin, we will remove it.
