MONTGOMERY CO., AL (WSFA) -

Have any gently-used shoes? Don't throw them away.

Instead send them to Fleet Feet Sports located at 2934 Carter Hill Road.

The store will begin collecting gently-used shoes as a new outreach program for the homeless and less fortunate in Montgomery.

"Anytime you have gently shoes you wish to donate, bring them by the store. We'll need your help to make this successful," said Fleet Feet Montgomery Owner Avery Ainsworth. "Our hope is to give back to the community and make a difference one pair of shoes at a time."

His plan is to make this an on-going program and collect gently-used shoes, then personally take them to the streets to and fit the homeless and less fortunate.

"I had been thinking about this idea for a while," Ainsworth said. "When I saw our homeless community out and about that day, I decided it was time to step out there and help."

You can drop off shoes anytime during store hours, Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m..
