"Shoes to Use" in Palm Coast and Flagler County

“Shoes to Use” is a shoe recycling campaign launched by Kopec Insurance in Palm Coast and Flagler County in 2009.  The program provides a way to help those less fortunate.

Brian Kopec, owner of Kopec Insurance says:

We collect, deliver and donate shoes that are in good condition to those who need them.  Our efforts have been very successful providing shoes to children and adults that otherwise may be wearing shoes that don’t fit, or even none at all, as a result of their particular situation.  I was inspired by a visit to a homeless shelter. People of all ages were there looking for assistance. Parents were wearing shoes that had seen better days and children wore shoes that simply didn’t fit."

Brian Kopec and his colleagues at Kopec Insurance found that many people simply throw their shoes away when they got out of style or their kids out grow them after they have only worn them a few times. Sometimes shoes find their way to a local Goodwill where they are resold. Kopec Insurance wanted to make them available to others at no cost.

Shoes to Use” gives everyone a chance to feel a little better: 

Shoes get us where we are going in life and if your shoes don’t feel good then you don’t feel good. People need to feel good.

Kopec Insurance collects sneakers, tennis shoes and other comfortable shoes (even the occasional pair of sandals or dress shoes) that are in great condition. Take a look around. You might just have an extra pair sitting in our closet that someone else might benefit from.

Kopec Insurance is located at 393 Palm Coast Parkway, SW, Suite 4 in West Pointe Plaza (west end of Palm Coast Parkway in the center island). For more information please contact Brian Kopec at 446-5307.
