Help Your Neighbors

Donate Goods To Help Your Neighbors

Many households are just barely scraping by at this time.  These situations have many reasons for occurring such as a family member losing a job, Covid-19 related circumstances, or an ill family member.  When money is tight, families will spend money on trying to keep a roof over their head or on feeding their families.  There might not be any extra money to obtain clothing or shoes. 

School has just started and many children have grown over the summer.  This means that they need new clothing and shoes for the school year.  Adults might need new clothing, shoes, and accessories for a job interview, for their current jobs, or just to replace worn out items.

How can you help?  Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service suggests ways to help your neighbors:

•    Consider doing a summer clean out of your closets and donating your gently used shoes
•    Donate clothing that your child has outgrown
•    Donate your clothing accessories such as belts and purses.  These could help a person who is trying to get a job

If you can’t donate money or your time, then a simple donation of gently used shoes, purses, belts, clothing, and luggage are a great contribution.  If you are looking for a place to donate these items, consider Goodwill.  There are many locations across the state where you can donate.  For more information, please visit online at

After weeding your closets, you may have noticed items that you want to keep but that need repairing.  Jamestown Shoe and Luggage Service has over 30 years’ experience in repairing shoes, purses, leather, and luggage.  We are located at 931 North State Road 434, Suite 1095, in Altamonte Springs, FL 32714.  Our store hours are Monday through Friday from 8am until 6pm.  On Saturday, we are open from 8am until 2pm.  We are closed on Sunday.
