OSF hosts annual shoe drive

BLOOMINGTON - A medical center in the Twin Cities is hosting a shoe drive for people in need.

OSF Healthcare St. Joseph Medical Center partnered with Home Sweet Home Ministries for its 15th annual shoe drive. They are looking for any lightly worn or new shoes. Bins are already filling up.

"It really makes a difference for a lot of people,” said Leslie Bunge, Communications Communicator for Home Sweet Home Ministries. “Because, like I said, we have, you know, everyone from all walks of life come into our store, looking for a pair of shoes. Whether it's a mom looking for a pair of shoes for her kid to make it through for the school year, or maybe it's someone who needs that last minute pair of shoes for a business interview or something like that."

Anyone looking to donate can drop off shoes at any of 3 drop-off locations in Bloomington.

·         OSF HealthCare St. Joseph Medical Center in the parking lot along Veteran’s Parkway

·         OSF HealthCare Medical Group – College Avenue (1701 E. College Avenue, Bloomington) in the parking lot off Jumer Drive

·         Center for Health at Fort Jesse (2200 Fort Jesse Road, Normal) in the parking lot off Ft. Jesse Rd.

The shoe drive goes through Sunday.
