My name is Meleane Nelson-Latu, and together with Alyssa Te Wiata, we are Ambassadors for a group called Share A Pair. Share A Pair is an inititave to collect shoes in good condition and clean them and then we redistribute them out to families that need them. These can be school shoes, sneakers, Kids Shoes - in fact, shoes suitable for the whole family. We will accept any shoes, as long as they are in good condition.

We are now looking for donations of good quality, clean shoes that someone else may benefit from. If this sounds like something you can support, we would love it if you could flick us an email or a text and we can arrange to collect shoes from you, or alternatively we can arrange for you to drop them off.

You can drop Shoes off at Body and Sole Gym in Waerenga road.

We also have a Facebook page called ‘Share A Pair Otaki’. On there we will have weekly updates of what is happening.

If you are in need of shoes, or have shoes you would like to donate, please email:nelsonme@otakicollege.school.nz or tewiatal@otakicollege.school.nz. You can also send us a message via our FB page.

All requests for shoes will be confidential and private, and appointment times made to try shoes on as needed.
