UofL JA Department” is helping to provide safe water to people around the world by hosting a shoe drive from 8/1 – 8/30. Shoes of any size and condition can be dropped off at “UofL Department of Justice Administration”, located at “Brigman Hall”, between “8am-5pm”. The shoes will be donated to WaterStep, an organization that uses training and technology to create long-lasting water solutions for developing countries. For more information, call (502) 852-0064.

Once the shoes are collected and donated to WaterStep, they are sold to an exporter. The funds raised from the sale of the shoes go to WaterStep’s work of providing safe water solutions to people in third world communities and disaster hit areas. The shoes are then repurposed and re-sold in marketplaces providing affordable footwear to those in need. WaterStep collects on average 30,000 pounds of shoes each month, so that's 30,000 pounds of waste that is kept from going into landfills.

We have an active and exciting program within Justice Administration. At the Department of Justice Administration, we pride ourselves in offering high quality educational programs.
