Family Matters ( is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser Saturday, July 24 to raise funds for Family Matters to provide training and support to Illinois famiies who have children with disabilities.

Famiy Matters will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit Illinois families. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes  with a drive-through drop-off option for shoe donations at the Lincolnland Building by the Village Square Mall. Folks can drive up from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., pop their trunks and Family Matters volunteers will take the shoe donations out of the trunk. The drop-off will be on the north side of the Lincolnland building near the railroad tracks, across the street from the Hendelmeyer Rec Center.

In addition to the drive-up event, shoes can be dropped off any time from now until August 9 at the Family Matters office in the Lincolnland Building, 1901 S. 4th St., Suite 209.
