It's time to round up your empty shoeboxes


Eau Claire (WQOW)- Before you toss out that empty shoebox consider this, it could give someone in the community a leg up.

The United Way is kicking off its annual Shoebox Drive. The goal is to fill 1,000 boxes with things like toothpaste, shampoo and socks. They'll then be handed out at local food pantries, shelters and free clinics. 

A list with ideas on what to put in a shoebox, and where to drop them off can be found on the United Way's website.

The Shoebox Drive continues until November 8th.
