Delivering Shoes to SFJ

We invite people across the nation to get involved in Soles For Jesus by hosting a shoe drive. If you are located out of state, we don’t want getting shoes to our warehouse in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to hold you back. We have some transportation ideas to help make donating shoes as easy as possible. Below, you’ll find a few suggestions that will help to get you started.

Contact a trucking company

Contact local trucking companies and ask to speak to a supervisor or owner. Explain your shoe drive and ask if they would like to donate transportation services to help.

Drive to Milwaukee

Sometimes driving to Milwaukee costs less than shipping. We have met people delivering shoes from Florida, Kentucky, and more. Think about taking a road trip; we would love to meet you!

Also, share your transportation needs via social media, email, and word of mouth. Someone with travel plans to the Midwest (e.g. Chicago) may be willing to drive through Milwaukee with the shoe donation. We have often seen transportation needs met after posting a request on Facebook!

Mail the shoes

We have found that UPS, Fed Ex, and Unishippers are usually the best value for mailing/shipping options. Consider organizing a special fundraiser or ask for sponsorship to help raise money for getting the shoes to SFJ.


You can watch a video about how uShip works on their home page. Basically, you post your shipment, and transportation carriers bid on your request. The drivers who see your post will bid against each other to transport it, so you may get a great deal. In fact shoes were once delivered this way for free because the trucker wanted to donate his services and help get shoes to Africa.

When you arrange for transportation, please communicate that shipments should be delivered during business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm. Soles For Jesus is located on the north side of the Holland Beauty building, and the shipping/receiving docks are located next to our entrance.
