Helping others with your athletic shoes

Posted: June 17, 2014 - 4:42pm

One box of used (but not abused) athletic shoes is on the way to be repurposed and help others. In conjunction with Earth Day in April, Y‑12's LiveWise program asked employees to donate unused running shoes. Karen Lacey of Y‑12's LiveWise program said, "I'm excited to be able to help the MORE Foundation Group. Instead of the shoes sitting in a landfill, we're offsetting carbon from the atmosphere and providing others with a good they cannot afford."
