The Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office is once again participating in the new shoes and socks collection drive to assist local students and families in need. A collaborative effort between Pasco County government and the school district, the “Two Good Soles” campaign, which is in its sixth year, is seeking to collect as many new pairs of shoes and socks as possible. The tax collector’s offices in Pasco County will be collection sites for these donations between now and October 22, the final day of the drive.
The need for shoes is primarily at the middle and high school level, although shoes for elementary school students will also be welcomed.
While the tax collector’s office will accept donations of shoes and socks that are new and unused, the school district reports that the sizes most in need are children’s shoes 9 and up, adult shoes of all sizes and socks of any size. It is recommended that sneakers, shoes and socks be of a “neutral” color, but all donations of new items will be accepted. No flip-flops or open-toes shoes, please.
If you are interested in making a donation, please visit one of the following offices in Pasco County and leave your donation in the labeled collection box near the door.
For more information about the “Two Good Soles” shoe and sock drive, or any other service provided by the tax collector’s office, please contact Greg Giordano, Assistant Tax Collector for Communications & Special Projects at (727) 847-8179.
