Help NIKE Grind at UREC

Don’t know what to do with your old athletic shoes? Recycle them! UREC is currently collecting athletic shoes to donate throughout the Harrisonburg community as well as recycle through Nike Grind.
 
Gently used shoes will be donated to the community through First Step and Our Community Place. First Step offers shelter and support groups to women and children fleeing from domestic violence. Our Community Place focuses on people helping people and offers a soup kitchen for all in need. 
 
Worn and torn shoes will be donated to Nike Grind where they will be recycled and made into sport surfaces around the world, including gym/weight room flooring, running tracks, playground surfaces, and outdoor and indoor synthetic courts. Since 1990, Nike Grind has collected 25,056,779 pairs of shoes globally. You can learn more about Nike Grind while your old shoes could help create a basketball court!
 
Please, no cleats, sandals, flip flops, or shoes containing metal. Any brand of athletic shoes is acceptable!
 
Help UREC by donating your athletic shoes today.  Gently used and worn and torn shoes should be placed into their respective bin in the lobby of UREC. Also, thanks to our partnership with Athletics for a collection site, shoes may also be dropped off into their respective bin on the first floor of Godwin. Contact Chris Jones at 540-568-8723 or jones4cr@jmu.edu for more information.
