We had a caller ask that question recently. He owns a shoe company and has a bunch of single test shoes he wanted to donate. After a minute of searching, our clever community information staff searched for an amputee organization. Well it turns out, the American Amputee Foundation of Oregon runs a Single Shoe program for amputees who need only one shoe.
