Gonzaga University, Loyola Marymount University, and Pepperdine University are beating the Broncos in the Zappos.com Western Coast Conference Shoe Drive. Since Dec. 1, universities have been collecting gently used shoes to be distributed around the world. After the devastation occurred in Haiti, organizers refocused their attention onto the earthquake victims and will be donating the shoes to men, women, and children there.
Gonzaga is currently in first place with 1,000 pairs of shoes. LMU has collected 600, Pepperdine has 260, and SCU has only 250 pairs in their bins. Broncos, you can do better than this. Grab a pair of gently used shoes from your closet and drop them off at the Leavey Event Center, Malley Fitness, and Recreation Center, or any Residential Learning Community. You can also donate shoes for babies or toddlers and even dress shoes for men and women. The last day to donate is Feb. 26.
