Premier Self Storage in Egg Harbor Township, N.J., donated space for a New Jersey teen to store shoes as part of Shoes 2 Share, a Delaware-based shoe charity that distributes shoes to Operation THERE (The Haitian Earthquake Relief Effort) and other causes worldwide. Brian Honick, a junior at St. Augustine College Prep, began the shoe drive as part of a service project. The teen says he chose a shoe charity because his dad is a podiatrist.

The goal was to collect 1,000 pairs of new and used shoes for adults and children including sneakers, sturdy sandals and work boots between April 19 and May 14. A total of 1,501 pairs of shoes were collected at the various schools and churches and stored at the Premier Self Storage.

The shoes will be transported to a warehouse in Delaware where they'll be sorted and cleaned, then distributed. .
