Quality Buick GMC Cadillac at 1620 East Homer Adams Parkway, Alton, is hosting a shoe drive to help make a difference. Donors can bring any condition and type of shoes to the showroom.
Shoes will be accepted as long as they do not have holes. Drop-offs can be made 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; and 8:30 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
